Reclaiming Child and Youth
Understanding Trauma through the Neurosequential Model: Core Concepts and Implementation

What does it mean to be trauma-informed? Going beyond the medical model, the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT) maps the neurobiological development of maltreated children. Assessment through the Neurosequential Model lens identifies developmental challenges and relationships which contribute to risk or resiliency. When formal therapy is combined with rich relationships with trustworthy peers, teachers, and caregivers, more progress is made. This presentation will provide an introduction to the core concepts of the Neurosequential Model and will address what this means with respect to implementation and practice.
Fee: $179
Dates: Apr 28; Friday, 10 am – 5 pm
