The Developmental Needs Meeting Strategy (DNMS) is a multidimensional, comprehensive, strengths-based, client-centered, ego-state therapy that can resolve relational trauma wounds (from verbal, physical, or sexual abuse) and attachment wounds (from neglect, rejection, enmeshment, and chronic misattunement). It consists of a series of very gentle, supportive DNMS protocols that...


 Build self-esteem

 Desensitize traumas

 Calm hostile introjects

 Reduce internal conflicts

 Overcome processing blocks

 Integrate dissociated parts of self

 Repair childhood attachment wounds

 Orient wounded parts to present time

 Compliment other modalities, like EMDR

 Reduce unwanted behaviors, beliefs, and emotions

 Use alternating bilateral stimulation (made popular by EMDR therapy)
