Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics©

“The Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT)© is a developmentally sensitive, neurobiology informed 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.” – ChildTrauma Academy

The ChildTrauma Academy acknowledges that Erica Schuppe, OTR/L has completed NMT Training Certification through the Phase I level.
