TBRI is a holistic evidence‐based, and trauma‐informed intervention that is designed to meet the needs of vulnerable children

Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI)brings hope and healing to caretakers struggling with challenging behaviors. However, sometimes it can present its own challenges when learning how to implement. This class will look at TBRI concepts and how to implement new skills in order to foster connection, attachment, and trust. In each class, participants will gain new insights, learn skills and interact with other caretakers to help them in their journey.

Join trainers Tristen McGhee an Early Childhood Educator, adoptive mom, writer, and advocate for foster/kinship/adopted children, and Brenda Crary, LMFT, a TBRI Practitioner + Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 25 years of experience in trauma-informed training, counseling & coaching. Both have substantial experience working with vulnerable families to find a path of hope and healing.
