About The Event

This training will introduce therapists, counselors, social workers and psychologists to the Neurosequential Model.  Often called a Bottom-Up approach to growth and healing from trauma, the Neurosequential Model builds regulation and mindfulness into therapy services.   Clinician considerations for incorporating into CCPT and Adlerian Play Therapy will be discussed.
