Using The Neurorelational Framework (NRF) this session will provide insights, activities, processes, and understanding of four brain systems that are impacted by exposure to chronic toxic stress and adverse childhood experiences. The Neurorelational Framework is a trauma-informed care model that helps us understand that the nature and function of the mind and brain are shaped by experiences, especially those involving emotional relationships in early childhood. A revolutionary way of understanding how to work with children who have been exposed to traumatic experiences. (3-hr Set Two Training on Oregon Registry).

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
  • Have a working knowledge of the four brain systems impacted by adverse early childhood experiences.
  • Have a working knowledge of key research in the neurobiology of trauma informed care and the application to their work with families and children. 
Intended audience: EHS, QTL, Health, PFCE
