The Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT) and Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) are important research‐based and evidence-informed approaches to understanding and working with children, youth, and young adults who are presenting with manifestations of complex developmental trauma.

NMT is a developmentally sensitive, neurobiology‐informed approach to clinical problem solving. NMT is an evidence‐based practice and not a specific therapeutic technique or intervention. It is an approach that integrates core principles of neurodevelopment and traumatology to aid in the selection and sequencing of therapeutic, educational and enrichment activities that match the needs and strengths of the individual.

CPS offers an evidence‐informed approach to assist parents, teachers and mental health providers identify children’s cognitive skill deficits that lead to challenging behaviors. It starts with the philosophy that "Children will do well when they can” and helps adults teach children flexibility, problem solving, and emotion regulation skills.

This conference will provide an overview of both of these approaches and practical examples of strategies for their integrated implementation. It will build on initial work by the two presenters at two previous conferences in Oregon to combine the models in practical clinical application. These models are complementary and reflect humane and respectful ways to understand, treat and teach challenging children and those who care for them. The conference represents an important learning activity for physicians, child‐serving professionals, educators, youth, parents, and family members.
