Successfully repairing the damage of abuse, trauma, neglect, illness and developmental interference.

Are you working with children?
Do you want to understand how to effectively protect and enhance children’s development and potential and learn the key principles to successful intervention? 

REPAIR™ is achieving remarkable results and has been adopted by many clinical, community and educational institutions and practitioners.  Advances in the developmental neurosciences and epigenetics have reshaped our understanding of the brain and the impact that early life stressors such as insecure attachments, abuse, neglect and other traumatic events can have on the developing brain's structure and function. 

Professionals working with children and individuals will be more effective if they understand how to protect and enhance the mechanisms involved in brain development in order to optimise the structural and functional integrity of the brain. 

REPAIR™ Seminar offers a balance of conceptual, empirical and practical information designed to bridge the research-to-practice gap in this exciting new field. This training will provide attendees with the opportunity to explore the program, gain an understanding of assessment methods, and learn strategies to integrate the model into current practice across a range of professional and community settings.

Grounded in evidence-based developmental neuroscience, the REPAIR™ Program is a six-step integrated neuro-biological model in which cognition, behaviour, emotion, motivation and function can be understood through the mechanisms that underpin responses to experience.

Some of the seminar key content includes:

  • A neurofunctional perspective on development, brain function and people in crisis.
  • The eight core principles of neurofunction.
  • An overview of the REPAIR™ Model and each of it’s components
  • REPAIR™ intervention examples and success stories

Dr Grant Sinnamon is a self-confessed “neuro-nerd” and divides his time between private clinical practice, academia, and consultancy to the clinical, educational, and community sectors. With qualifications in psychology, medicine (psychiatry and psychiatric neuroscience), counselling, and adult education, his understanding of developmental neurobiology and the clinical neurosciences, combined with his clear and enthusiastic presentation style, make this a training opportunity not to be missed.


"Fantastic course, very thorough and well explained. Grant has given me a much greater awareness in how I can work with the parents/children in my work." - Counsellor

"I have found the workshop to be very insightful, informative and the resources very helpful. The delivery method has been great as there has been a mix of written, spoken and visual aids to accommodate a variety of learning styles. Grant has been able to relay the information at multiple levels of understanding to accommodate people from a variety of professions. The stories and experience has made this information more relatable." - Manager of Social Services

"Stimulating, Inspiring, Encouraging, Thought Provoking! Thoroughly enjoyable and very informative, loved every minute." - Counsellor

"I have really enjoyed this seminar. Grant was awesome in presenting the information and sharing his wealth of knowledge. I can use this program within the context of my work and look forward to applying this REPAIR program in my practice." - Family/Whanau Worker
