THE NEUROSEQUENTIAL MODEL
Developed by Bruce D. Perry, MD, PhD, is a developmentally sensitive, neurobiology-informed approach to clinical problem solving. It 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.
