2014 Fall NMT Master Clinician Series

The NMT Case-Based Training Series are sets of clinical case conferences led by Dr. Bruce Perry and attended by participants via the Internet. This teaching model has been useful for helping clinicians and frontline staff better understand the neurodevelopmental principles involved in many of the primary symptoms, as well as strengths, they see in the children they serve.

The 2014 Fall NMT Master Clinician Series consists of ten 90-minute sessions (plus two 90-minute introductory sessions for clinicians wanting more NMT context or introduction) for a total of 18 training hours.  Participate as an individual or as a group.  


The objective of this Masters Series is to provide our subscribers with more in-depth exposure to some of the specific therapeutic approaches and practices that are used in NMT-directed treatment plans. Each of the ten sessions have a guest Master Clinician with expertise and experience in a specific clinical area (see schedule). Master Clinicians have the first 20-25 minutes of each 90-minute session to present an overview of their specific therapeutic activity or approach. The remaining time is dedicated to a case discussion; the client presented will be from one of the organizations currently in the NMT Site Certification process. In collaboration with Dr. Perry, the Master Clinician guides and discusses elements of the clinical challenges posed by the presented client and his/her circumstances. The Master Clinician provides perspectives and insights from their specific clinical frame of reference.

No pre-requisite courses are needed to attend. Participants new to NMT should first view the two extra sessions for background / foundation.

This is considered an advanced training series.  Recordings will remain available for 1 year following enrollment. Recordings may be stopped, paused and/or replayed.
