Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics.

The Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT) is a developmentally sensitive, neurobiologyinformed approach to clinical problem solving developed The ChildTrauma Academy. NMT is not a specific therapeutic technique or intervention. It is an approach that integrates core principles of neurodevelopment and traumatology to inform work with children, families, and the communities in which they live. The Neurosequential Approach has three components – training/capacity building, assessment, and then, specific recommendations for the selection and sequencing of therapeutic, educational, and enrichment activities that match the needs and strengths of the individual. This clinical approach helps professionals determine the strengths and vulnerabilities of children and helps them create individualized intervention, enrichment, and educational plans to match each child’s unique needs. The goal is to find a set of therapeutic activities that meet the child’s current needs in various domains of functioning (i.e. social, emotional, cognitive, and physical).

The Child Trauma Academy acknowledges that Douglas Pfeifer has completed NMT Training Certification through the Phase I Level. If interested in using this assessment model or in learning more about the NMT Model, please contact us.
