Introduction to the Implementation and Practice of the Neurosequential Model
The knowledge gained through the Neurosequential Model (NM), has deepened our understanding of our clients, as well as our practice. With the core concepts of the NM as the framework, 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 children and families learn to self-regulate using this approach, they have shown better access to higher-order thinking (executive function skills) and have increased retention and learning potential in multiple contexts
This session is being provided by one of 8 Flagship Sites for the ChildTrauma Academy to provide an overview of the Implementation and Practice of the NM approach.
