Using NARM to Decrease the Stigma of Dissociative Identity Disorder with Erin Lewis

“I have recently started sharing my own personal journey with DID to fight stigma and to advocate that we deserve to be treated like people as well.” - Erin Lewis, NARM Therapist

Clinical Mental Health Counselor Erin Lewis is a trauma therapist from North Carolina who specializes in Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), formerly known as Multiple Personality Disorder.

Erin herself has been treated for DID and is committed to promoting education and supporting the needs for traumatized individuals, including those with DID. Her mission is to further treatment across the US in terms of how we view and treat DID. 

She is a strong proponent for using NARM in her efforts. Erin not only wants to help others who are impacted by Dissociative Identity Disorder, she wants to change the stigma and educate those who might not otherwise know about it, including medical and mental health professionals.

Erin, who recently completed the Level 2 NARM Therapist Training, describes how the NARM framework for understanding complex trauma is so helpful in working with individuals with DID. She has been integrating NARM with Internal Family Systems (IFS) in her practice. Erin has studied other clinical theories and approaches and feels strongly that many miss the mark. She shares that she really appreciates how NARM addresses consent, specifically how NARM starts sessions with inquiring about what the client wants for themselves. 


At the NARM Training Institute, we’re excited to unveil a new video series we’re launching this month in the NARM Inner Circle online program. 

Over the course of the next year, the focus of Senior Faculty Brad Kammer’s demonstration sessions will be on NARM and DID.  Erin has made herself available to demonstrate how NARM can be applied in working over multiple sessions with a client with DID.  The June 2021 NARM Demo is the first in a series of these NARM demos with Erin and Brad that will continue in the Inner Circle every other month this year. 

To celebrate our growing NARM international community, we’re offering a special 50% discount for new annual members of the Inner Circle online program. For those interested, go to to sign up and use the checkout code: JUNE2020 -- offer available until June 30th, 2020.
