Event description

Description

This "Introduction to the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics©: Core Concepts in Neurodevelopmental Assessment and Treatment" program will present some of the basic concepts of NMT™ – a model of child trauma assessment developed by Dr. Bruce Perry through the Child Trauma Academy. It incorporates principles of treatment consistent with neuro-developmental needs of children impacted by developmental trauma. NMT is an emerging evidence-based practice that is rapidly growing in use as a learning model / heuristic for building clinical capacity for effective trauma informed care. The model specifically identifies a variety of approaches to working with youth and families based on a comprehensive and integrated understanding of neurobiology and child development. This training will provide an overview and will include introductory discussion of topics, such as the brain’s structure and functioning, threat response systems, and state-dependent functioning.

Registration Deadline: 3/20/19
