Neurosequential Model of Therapy
Neurosequential Model of Therapy (NMT):
NMT is a way to organize a child’s trauma history and current functioning. It emphasizes the importance of positive, supportive relationships and nurturing experiences to help children stabilize, heal, and grow. This therapy works on the most disorganized parts of the brain and re-trains the brain to process information in healthier ways. Melissa is currently completing a training program on the NMT model.
A brain map is a specialized assessment that precisely detects what areas of the brain have not yet developed. This tool is used to assist everyone involved in the child’s care to see where trauma has affected his or her brain. It serves as a blueprint to individualize treatment and track a child’s progress.
