Learn and Grow with EITI


Course Framework

The Neurorelational Framework (NRF),- by Connie Lillas, PhD, MFT, RN and Janiece Turnbull, PhD- provides the foundation for our curriculum. Its unifying approach bridges current research from multiple disciplines to create a framework for how infants and children develop in the context of their relationships and surroundings. The NRF offers guiding principles applicable across disciplines, theory, and practice.
