About this course
The Neurosequential Model© is a developmentally-informed, biologically-respectful approach to caregiving, education and therapeutics. Drawing on core concepts from many disciplines including the neurosciences, anthropology, developmental psychology and sociology, the Neurosequential Model© is an evidence-based framework useful for individual clinical problem solving and program outcomes evaluation and modification. This model has been adapted for specialized application in a variety of settings (e.g., the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics: NMT and the Neurosequential Model in Caregiving, NMC). The Neurosequential Model in Education© (NME) brings this neurodevelopmental and trauma-informed approach to the classroom. The NME is not a specific “program” or “intervention.” It includes a “capacity-building” process that introduces important concepts related to how we learn by focusing on how the brain functions, develops, changes and is impacted by developmental adversity including trauma. These concepts have broad applicability in education, sport, drama, and music. Further, the NME provides practical examples of application of these key concepts in everyday educational settings. The NME Trainer Program consists of ten modules, representing approximately 100 hours of training over the course of 10 months. This program also requires active participation in an online study group that meets for 2 hours per month.
