Trust-Based Relational Intervention® Training
Communities are full of hurting children. Some physical and emotional hurts are easier to recognize than others. A behavior that may be seen as willful disobedience could be a learned survival tactic that a child is demonstrating.
Trust Based Relational Intervention® is designed to meet the complex needs of vulnerable, hurting children. Because of their histories, children who have experienced adversity, early harm, toxic stress, and/or trauma have changes in their bodies, brains, behaviors, and belief systems. While a variety of parenting strategies may be successful in typical circumstances, children with histories of harm need caregiving that meets their unique needs and addresses the whole child.
TBRI® is an attachment-based, trauma-informed intervention that is designed to meet the complex needs of vulnerable children.
- TBRI® uses Empowering Principles to address physical needs, Connecting Principles for attachment needs, and Correcting Principles to disarm fear-based behaviors.
- TBRI® is based on years of attachment, sensory processing, and neuroscience research, the heartbeat of TBRI® is connection.
