Trauma-Informed Training

Neurosequential Model in Education

Developed by Dr Bruce Perry and his colleagues at the Child Trauma Academy in America, the neurosequential model in education is a developmentally-sensitive, neurobiologically-respectful, trauma-informed approach to working with children and young people in schools, particularly those with social, emotional and mental health needs. 

 

NME Trainers are certified to deliver a series of training sessions to schools around the core principles of this approach, including how the brain develops, organises and functions; the impact of stress and trauma on the brain; and strategies and interventions to promote readiness for learning. More information can be found through Sussex Psychology.

For more in-depth training in this area for schools, please refer to the NME training.

Supervision

​Psychological supervision provides a safe space to support the development of staff knowledge, skills, confidence, reflective practice and wellbeing. This can be facilitated either on a one-to-one basis or in small groups. You can find more information about the purpose and benefits of supervision in education here - https://charliewaller.org/resources/supervision-in-education.

Creative people brainstorming in meeting

Intervention

This may include individual therapeutic work, such as emotional literacy, regulation and anxiety management sessions, or group peer interventions, such as circle of friends, or whole class workshops, such as mindfulness sessions to promote wellbeing.
