“TBRI® is an attachment-based, trauma-informed intervention that is designed to meet the complex needs of vulnerable children. While the intervention is based on years of attachment, sensory processing, and neuroscience research, the heartbeat of TBRI is connection. TBRI is based on a solid foundation of neurodevelopmental theory and research, tempered by humanitarian principles. It is a caregiver-based intervention that is designed for children who have experienced relationship-based traumas such as institutionalization, multiple foster placements, maltreatment, and/or neglect.
This one day overview TBRI training will cover the three core principles of the intervention: connecting, empowering, and correcting principles. The goals for this training are the following: •To lay the foundation for deep insight about the impact of a child’s history on their long-term development. •To create a framework for practical intervention and application. •To enhance understanding about how to interpret behavior and to respond appropriately.
