Relationships, Let's Dive Deeper! Understanding the Complexities of the Individual Neurodevelopmental Needs of Students and Staff to Inform Our Practices

Susan Andrien, LMFT and Angela Harris, LCSW

Through the lens of Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) participants will be introduced to a framework that supports multi-disciplinary teams to understand the neurodevelopmental needs of students impacted by developmental trauma. We will explore the nuances of a relational approach that is informed by Dr. Bruce Perry’s Neurosequential Model (NMT). We will take an in depth look at how varied staff roles can support students through understanding the universal and individual neurodevelopmental needs of students and staff. This training is intended to inform and enhance current practices of educators. Tickets available for in-person or virtually via Zoom.

Keynote Presentations

Life in Limbo

David White, MBA, LMSW

Life in Limbo is experiential learning at its best, as you step into the shoes of a child entering foster care, their parent temporarily losing custody, or their caregiver, trying to bring stability. Chaos moves to compassion and to great ideas that improve the state of foster care for all children.

Relational Doses, The Foundation of Hope

Susan Andrien, LMFT and Angela Harris, LCSW

Enhance your “Why?” by reflecting upon your personal relational experiences, identifying your individual relational web and the turning points that made an impact on who you are today.
