ABOUT THE TRAINING: As a neuroscience researcher, scientist, and psychiatrist, Dr. Perry is a leading contributor to the emerging body of literature that describes abnormal patterns of brain development associated with early abuse, neglect, trauma and relational poverty. Such experiences negatively impact brain growth, causing the brain to organize in dysfunctional ways that can have lasting impacts. This can result in a kind of “neurobiological shackle” wherein one cannot therapeutically impact parts of the brain that are not active at the time of the intervention. For example, more primitive areas of the brain control many symptoms related to emotional dysregulation, but talk therapy primarily activates the cortex rather than these primitive areas. It follows that talk therapy alone would not be an effective intervention strategy for an emotionally dysregulated child. Perry will introduce strategies for assessing which areas of the brain are involved when a child is struggling and discuss interventions that will address both the symptoms and the related neurobiological dysfunction. LEARNING OBJECTIVES: As a result of this training, participants will have the ability to: (1) Describe the core concepts of human brain development and functioning; (2) Explain how experience shapes the brain and how trauma disproportionately impacts areas of the brain that are developing most actively when a trauma occurs; (3) Explain how changes in the neural system suggest specific therapeutic interventions that are developmentally synchronized; (4) Explore the implications of neglect and trauma in multiple domains of a child’s development; (5) Examine the concept of the “Intimacy Barrier” and the relevance of this to clinical work; (6) Briefly describe the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT) and how it supports therapeutic work with children who have experienced trauma; (7) Describe the clinical situations appropriate for using the NMT; and, (8) Describe ways to promote resilience, healing, and optimal development for children who have experienced maltreatment and/or trauma.
