Looking at Western Europe in general, and particularly in the Netherlands the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT) is still in a pre-stage of development and implementation. In Europe there are several institutions in the certification process and a handful individuals certified, but in the field of child psychiatry there is still little known about this new approach of clinical problem solving.

The Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT) is a developmentally sensitive, neurobiology- informed approach to clinical problem solving. As described by Brandt and colleagues (2012) – “The Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT) (Perry, 2006) provides an integrated understanding of the sequencing of neurodevelopment embedded in the experiences of the child, and supports biologically informed practices, programs, and policies.

Results will be shown about individual cases where NMT was used as a tool for clinical problem solving. This individual presentation wil be coupled with a workshop from colleagues using the recommendations from a NMT assessment (e.g. somatosensory and attachment enriching interventions).

As a global evidence-based practice (EBP) and coupled with the NMT’s brain mapping matrix, the model supports providers in identifying specific areas for therapeutic work and in selecting appropriate therapies, including evidence-based therapies (EBTs), within a comprehensive therapeutic plan.

The Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics has a more developmentally informed, biologically respectful approach to clinical work. It is therefore a useful alternative model to complement and restructure therapeutic interventions in working with traumatized children. Organized NMT-based intervention models, such as NMT therapeutic child care, can be EBTs.”
