Director of Penn Foundation’s Treatment Project Receives Scholarship

Jonathan_LabmanJonathan Labman, L.P.C., M.A., Director of Penn Foundation’s Trauma Treatment Project, has received a scholarship from the United Way of Southeastern Pennsylvania to complete a two-year Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics Training Certification Program through The Child Trauma Academy based in Houston, Texas.

The Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics is a pioneering branch of neuroscience designed to map the brain’s development (or lack thereof due to trauma). This mapping then informs the direction of care, determining precisely what treatment methods, and in what order, would be most effective.

The certification program will be led by Bruce D. Perry, M.D., Ph.D., Senior Fellow at The Child Trauma Academy and an internationally-recognized authority on children in crisis. Dr. Perry has served as a consultant and expert witness on many high-profile incidents involving traumatized children, including the Columbine High School massacre, the Oklahoma City bombing, the Waco siege, and the YFZ Ranch custody cases. By completing this program, Labman will become an on-site trainer in this model for all Penn Foundation clinicians.

Penn Foundation’s Trauma Treatment Project, which is a joint venture with Indian Creek Foundation, was made possible through a grant from the North Penn Community Health Foundation. The Project is designed to offer more supportive services to consumers who have experienced trauma. Clinicians agree that trauma underlies 85% of mental health and substance use issues as well as eating disorders, medical conditions, and interactions with the criminal justice system.
