Seeing The Invisible Wounds Of Developmental Trauma


Resilient children are MADE not born.

Internationally renowned child psychiatrist Dr. Bruce Perry has helped children faced with unimaginable horror: genocide survivors, murder witnesses, kidnapped teenagers, and victims of family violence.

His clinical research and practice has focused on high-risk children. This work has examined the cognitive, behavioral, emotional, social, and physiological effects of neglect and trauma in children, adolescents and adults. This work has been instrumental in describing how childhood experiences, including neglect and traumatic stress, change the biology of the brain – and, thereby, the health of the child.
His work has resulted in the development of innovative clinical practices and programs working with maltreated and traumatized children, most prominently the Neurosequential Model©, a developmentally sensitive, neurobiology-informed approach to clinical work (NMT), education (NME) and caregiving (NMC).

Join us for an enlightening day where he shares their stories of trauma and transformation through the lens of science, revealing the brain’s astonishing capacity for healing. Dr. Perry will explain what happens to the brain when a child is exposed to extreme stress-and reveals what can be done to ease a child’s pain and help him heal and thrive.
