Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®) is a holistic approach that is multi-disciplinary, flexible, attachment-centered, and challenging. It is an evidence-based, trauma-informed intervention that is specifically designed for children who come from hard places, such as maltreatment, abuse, neglect, multiple home placements, and violence, but you’ll see that the principles apply to all children.

TBRI® consists of three sets of harmonious principles: Connecting, Empowering, and Correcting Principles.

There are two types of Empowering strategies:
-Physiological Strategies, which focus on the internal physical needs of the child. These include things like hydration, blood sugar, and sensory needs. • Ecological Strategies focus on the child’s external environment and guide children toward learning self-regulation skills.
-Ecological Strategies include things like transitions, scaffolding (guided support appropriate to a child’s level that facilitates learning), and daily rituals. TBRI® Correcting Principles Correcting Principles help children learn behavioral and social competence so that they can better navigate the social world they live in.

This is an online class. You will receive an email with a Zoom link 24 hours prior to training from Foster Parent Training Specialist Kathy Haddock.  Make sure you have downloaded the zoom app onto your device and plan to sign in a few minutes early to work through any technical difficulties.
