Trauma Informed Practice Seminar

This two-day workshop will explore the impact of trauma on neurodevelopment in childhood and introduce the Neuro-Sequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT) developed by Bruce Perry. This workshop is designed to give practical resources that can be used in therapeutic settings and classrooms, helping to increase understanding of underlying causes of difficulties experienced by traumatised children and optimal modes of intervention.
