About the day

Dr Perry will explore the effects of trauma, neglect and abuse in children and adolescents. He will describe how traumatic experiences in early life can change the development of the brain and the behavioural, social and emotional impact on the child.

The day will give a comprehensive insight into Dr Perry's 'Neurosequential Model of Care Giving', allowing parents and carers to understand and make a genuine difference to their child's life.

Practitioners will be able to consider this approach to provide an enhanced level of support to adoptive families.

Dr Perry's deep understanding of the behavioural, emotional, social and physiological effects of trauma will inspire adopters, foster carers and practitioners alike.
