The Adult Attachment Repair Model (AARM) Training

September 20, 2021 4:00 PM PST

A New and Effective Way To Treat Emotional Trauma.

Learn about becoming an expert in the repair of adult attachment trauma.


This is a unique opportunity to attend a free introductory webinar outlining the practical application and benefits of The Adult Attachment Repair Model. The AARM is an emotional healing process developed by Peter Cummings over his more than 30 years of clinical practice. The webinars are open to Coaches, Clinicians, Healers, Therapists, Body Workers, and Spiritual Practitioners who want to learn about this innovative treatment that addresses insecure attachment in adults.

The hour long session will give an overview of the structured eight month weekly training course which starts in early 2022. The training offers both virtual and in person classes led by AARM Originator – Peter Cummings, LCSW (LCS11274) This intensive course offers a depth of knowledge that will set you apart from all other healing practitioners and give you a comprehensive model to address trauma through the body, using physical sensation and the body’s natural wisdom, instead of words and cognition.

Please join us in an interactive Zoom Webinar to learn:


  • How attachment repair happens through the body – “change the body, change the mind” (van der Kolk)
  • How to decode the presence of existential anguish; the aggregate collection of developmental disappointments
  • The importance of well-being to the healing process as explained through PolyVagal Theory
  • The 4 Cornerstones of Secure Attachment
  • How a Transitional Attachment Object (TAO) in the form of a stick is utilized to facilitate a physical healing script. 
  • How to join the AARM training, move beyond traditional cognitive therapy and take your place at the forefront of the growing field of neuromodulation.

How to Treat Attachment Trauma Using the The Adult Attachment Repair Model (AARM)

A Training Opportunity for Psychotherapists and Healers
We would like to include you in our next cohort 
November 9, 2020, through April 5,2021 


Please join a free Zoom Webinar on the AARM. See dates and registration link below to learn about an innovative treatment model that addresses insecure attachment in adults. This is the first of several webinars to recruit Study Group members. Both licensed and nontraditional healers can learn more about the AARM by joining these webinars. We want you to have the opportunity to decide if this training program fits with your goals for professional development.

 The AARM was created by Peter Cummings, LCSW. He is now offering this training to the mental health community of practitioners after 25 years of development, complimented by a comprehensive manuscript entitled the Sensation of Discovery. 

There has been a longstanding interest in complex trauma within the mental health field. Thus far there has yet to be a widely accepted treatment model that honors the neurobiology of attachment, but there has been many solid theories on how insecure attachment takes hold in the body and brain. Bridging the gap between theory and practice has been slow to materialize. Many of the attachment models are still cognitive based talk therapies. The AARM, in contrast, is a comprehensive approach for insecure attachment in adults using the body versus a life narrative that generates from one’s intellect.

 Developmental trauma is one of the most challenging types of trauma to treat because attachment experiences are primarily felt first and then understood or misunderstood later. The importance of learning through experience is the only viable way to understand how attachment takes hold within all of us. Feeling before thinking honors experience as the basic mode for grasping the nuance of attachment with a unique neurological architecture. The AARM has evolved throughout its development to provide corrective experiences over thoughts as the medium for behavioral change.

Through this one-hour overview of the AARM you will learn:

  • How paradigm shifts in theory and practice are explained through the neurobiology of personal interaction.
  • How attachment trauma resides in the involuntary nervous system as existential anguish limiting functionality.
  • What therapeutic conditions, beyond traditional talk therapy, are required to treat attachment trauma with efficiency and effectiveness?
  • How the AARM training program is structured, learning expectations and costs.

Possible benefits:

  • Revitalize your practice repertoire and generate more word of mouth referrals.
  • Repackage your clinical skill set with a neuro-modulation intervention framework to create right to right hemisphere interactions.
  • Learn to identify auxiliary practices like energy work and meditation within the arena of the neuro-modulation interventions of the AARM.
  • Understand how a treatment model like the AARM can produce unique reciprocal healing benefits for both the practitioner and client.
  • Distinguish incremental improvements in functionality within clients as a more pragmatic and realistic way to identify desirable changes in behavior.

“I greatly appreciated the training, especially the demos and experiential practice and follow up discussions. Thank you!”

“I continue to use this work with several clients. I’m really am astonished at the outcome. I have never experienced work that goes so thoroughly to the core. The work continues according to the feedback that I get. It is like opening new levels that the neurological system has been too fearful to share.”
