Neurorelational Framework


The Neu­rore­la­tional Frame­work (NRF) is a ground­break­ing neu­ro­sci­en­tific under­stand­ing of infant and child devel­op­ment that addresses the crit­i­cal need for a more cohe­sive sys­tem of care for our youngest patients. Many prac­ti­tion­ers are trained to view only their domain as defin­ing a parent-child’s needs. The NRF pro­vides a con­cep­tual frame­work for inter­dis­ci­pli­nary col­lab­o­ra­tion in order to treat the whole child opti­mally in the con­text of his or her rela­tion­ships. Sim­i­lar to the DIR/Floortime Model, dyadic play ther­apy is a fea­tured treat­ment modality.

Sig­nif­i­cantly, the NRF is not lim­ited to infant (or child) men­tal health appli­ca­tions; it is the cut­ting edge for address­ing a host of rela­tional, emo­tional, devel­op­men­tal and men­tal health issues through­out one’s lifes­pan. It is the cut­ting edge for address­ing many of life’s com­plex­i­ties, includ­ing those par­tic­u­lar to Fam­ily Ther­apy and Rela­tion­ship Coun­sel­ing. Our mod­ern lives are incred­i­bly com­plex, as are our rela­tion­ships and fam­ily sys­tems. The NRF gives men­tal health pro­fes­sion­als a pow­er­ful new tool to help their clients of all ages deal with the com­plex chal­lenges and con­di­tions of mod­ern life.
