NMT Provincial Presentations - Edmonton
Introduction to the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics
The Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT) is a revolutionary evidence-based practice based on the understanding of neuroscience and brain development. This model, developed by Dr. Bruce Perry and his team at The ChildTrauma Academy, has deepened our understanding of how we work with traumatized children and adults. By better understanding the core concepts of the NMT, and utilizing that as the framework in which we understand our children and youth, we have increased our capacity to work with our clients, seeing a decrease in restraints and critical incidents, and increase in relational engagement, self-regulation, and staff satisfaction. By helping these children build the capacity to self-regulate using this approach, the children and youth have shown better access to higher-order thinking (executive function skills) and have increased retention and learning potential both in the classroom and in their home environment.
This session, which is being provided by one of 8 Flagship Sites for the ChildTrauma Academy, will provide an overview of the Core Concepts of the NMT approach.
