The human brain is an amazing and complex organ that allows each of us to think, feel and act. It is increasingly clear, based on the latest research, that the experiences of childhood act as primary architects of the brain’s capabilities throughout the rest of life. Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics, the model developed by Bruce Perry, MD, PhD., connects neurological development and functions in understanding the impact of childhood trauma. This workshop covers the basic tenants of the model.
1. The participants will understand the important characteristics of brain development.
2. The participants will understand the brain organization and function.
3. The participants will understand the the adaptive response to traumatic threat.
