Developmentally Informed Training for Working With At-Risk Children
The Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT) is a developmentally informed, biologically respectful approach to working with at-risk children. Training on this model is now available through the Child Trauma Academy.
NMT is not a specific technique or intervention; it is an evidence-based practice approach to clinical problem solving that looks at a child's history and current functioning. It integrates principles of neurodevelopment and traumatology to work with children and families. This approach has three components: training/capacity building, assessment, and recommendations for selecting and sequencing of activities that match the needs and strengths of the child.
Three types of training are available:
- NMT Case-Based Series: Online sessions where attendees can participate live or watch a recording
- NMT Training Certification: A year-long, self-paced training program
- Face-to-Face NMT Boot Camps
