Learning about Dr. Bruce Perry M.D., Ph.D’s Neurosequential Model with Randy Webb [Episode 23]

February 27, 2019

Randy Webb MA MC LPC LMHC returns to the Intentional Clinician to discuss Dr. Bruce Perry M.D., Ph.D’s Neurosequential Model. Randy and host, Paul Krauss MA LPC, explain what the Neurosequential Model is and discuss the immense amounts research by Dr. Bruce Perry and other leaders in the fields of trauma-informed care and neurobiology. Randy and Paul discuss possible applications for the Neurosequential Model and the emerging research on trauma, stress, and the human nervous system in the fields of psychotherapy, health care in general, education, the justice system, government policy, and more. Randy and Paul discuss cultural barriers and the older system of medicine, compared to the emerging Trauma-Informed Care and its implications for our communities and how we live. Further discussed is how the emerging research of neurobiology and the human nervous system could actually bring out positive ideas and promote methods that could help people live more fulfilling lives. In fact, the emerging research on the nervous system and Dr. Perry’s Neurosequential Model has implications far beyond healthcare and if understood and applied with care--it could shift culture and promote more unity among the human race.
