Event description

Description

Join us for a morning with Dr. Bruce Perry as he guides us through an introduction to the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics.

The development of a young child is profoundly influenced by experience. Experiences shape the organization of the brain which, in turn, influences the emotional, social, cognitive and physiological activities. Insights into this process come from understanding brain development. Based on a neurosequential understanding of brain development, the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT) is a developmentally sensitive, neurobiologically-informed approach to clinical problem solving that integrates core principles of neurodevelopment and traumatology to inform work with children, families, and the communities in which they live. This session will provide an overview of key principles of neurodevelopment, review key functions of the brain, and outline the hierarchy of brain development. From there, Dr. Perry will describe how the NMT approach can help professionals determine the strengths and vulnerabilities of a child and create an individualized intervention, enrichment, and educational plan matched to his/her unique needs.

Over the last thirty years, Dr. Perry has been an active teacher, clinician and researcher in children’s mental health. A full bio on Dr. Perry can be found here. Upon completing this workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe clinical research in maltreated children related to the impact of childhood trauma on brain development, emotion regulation, and behavior

  2. Outline basic neurodevelopmental principles necessary for understanding the role of childhood experience in defining brain function and organization

  3. Provide an overview of key concepts of the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics

  4. Understand ways in which the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics can be used to guide counseling intervention across multiple settings
