From Hindsight to Mindsight – an NPP approach to working with Developmentally Traumatised Children

The practical application of the neuro-sequential, NPP approach to the everyday practice of working with Developmentally Traumatised Children

At our recent 2018 Conference outlining the effectiveness of the NPP treatment model, many participants asked for a short course on how to integrate the Family Futures approach (Neuro-Physiological Psychotherapy) into their work with traumatised children. This course makes it possible for lone practitioners to utilise the framework and concepts to inform their work.

The course will run as a three-day block followed by a fourth day to review participant’s  practice applications.

CPD: HCPC 24 hours

Lunch and Course Handbook provided.


Course objectives

The 4-day course will:

  • Help embed the NPP mindset and core issues into participants’ everyday practice
  • Identify the sensory, attachment and cognitive effects on development of “Significant harm”

What skills will you take away?
