Trust Based Relational Intervention -- Correcting Principles

Date:   Friday, March 02, 2018
Time:   9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.

Developed by Dr. Karen Purvis and Dr. David Cross at the TCU Institute of Child Development, Trust-Based Relational Interventions (TBRI) is an award-winning intervention model for a wide range of childhood behavioral problems. TBRI is based on a solid foundation of neuropsychological theory and research, tempered by humanitarian principles. 

Correcting Principles:

TBRI® has three goals for correcting:

  1. Parents maintain connection with children (not disruptive to the relationship)

  1. Children end the episode feeling content (not discouraged or shamed)

  1. Episode ends with behavioral change

The goal is real behavioral change, not simply stopping a behavior in the moment, but an understanding and mastery of important life skills. The goal of parenting is preparing your child to be a successful, independent, moral adult. We accomplish this goal through guidance and instruction, not through teaching fear and blind obedience. Beyond behavior change, the benefit of utilizing the TBRI® Correcting principles is that it feels positive to parents and promotes a stronger parent-child bond.
