NRF – NeuroRelational Framework Guide

The NRF is a body-brain-based approach to assessment and intervention for early development. Three core concepts about brain development inform the NRF’s three steps: the Grounded Roots, the Supportive Trunk, the Integrated Branches.

  • Neuro= references the focus on understanding principles of brain development
  • Relational= references the significance of relationships and their impact on healing
  • Framework= references the NRF as both an assessment and intervention practice guiding the use of promising and evidence-based practices, so treatments better match neurodevelopmental needs
