The Neurosequential Model (NM) 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 NM, 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.
Learning objectives Day 1:

Learning objectives Day 2:
1.Gain an understanding of how this approach can be implemented in different settings to help manage the stress response system, improve a child and familys capacity for self-regulation and develop healthy relationships.
2.Illustrate the importance of rhythm and relationship within various settings.
3.Provide an overview of what the NM approach looks like in practice across different contexts
