2020 NME Implementation Series (15 Hour)

The 2020 NME Implementation Series is a unique collection of ten 90 minute pre-recorded webinars highlighting schools and organizations that have used the Neurosequential Model in Education (NME) to play a key role in developing their ‘trauma-aware’, ‘trauma-informed’, ‘trauma-responsive’, ‘socio-emotional’ or mental health programs and practices. Each webinar is a guided conversation about the challenges and successes in this process. The webinars include support materials including outcome reports and descriptions of program development. In addition, participants will be invited to the Neurosequential Network’s monthly NME Implementation calls (live webinars focusing on implementation of the NME). These Zoom webinars will begin in 2020.


This series is an excellent way to hear directly from professionals embedded in educational systems and is a useful resource for schools, school districts and related professionals or organizations. If never exposed to the Neurosequential Model, it is an opportunity to learn more about its use in educational settings; if already engaged in the Neurosequential Network, it is an easy way to learn more about implementation and see how others have created various regulating strategies, tracked outcomes, modified classroom practice, engaged educators and administrations, developed internal capacity building processes, and solved a host of challenges facing today’s educators.
