20 Years of Research into Practice
- Key note speaker: Professor Colwyn Trevarthen
- Presentation of Family Futures’ latest research into the evidence for Neuro-Physiological Psychotherapy — a comparison of treatment vs non-treatment groups
Aims of the conference
Family Futures is an Adoption Agency specialising in assessing and treating developmentally traumatised children. To celebrate our 20th year we are holding a conference that looks at both the work of one of our guiding lights, Colwyn Trevarthen, and at our research on our Neuro-Physiological Psychotherapy treatment programme and the outcomes for adopted children who have / have not participated in this programme.
Our latest research examines the outcomes of Family Futures’ Neuro-Physiological Psychotherapy (NPP) model which has at its core a neurosequential approach integrating Jean Ayres’ Sensory Integration, Theraplay® and Dan Hughes’ Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy. The NPP model also integrates the work of Peter Levine, Bruce Perry, other neuroscientists and Creative Art therapists.
