Trust Based Relational Intervention -- Connecting Principles

Date:   Friday, January 12, 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. 

Connecting Principles

The TBRI Connecting Principles are designed to  teach parents how to strengthen and deepen relationship connections between parents and children through learning mindfulness and engagement strategies.  When children come from difficult backgrounds, they have most likely experienced relationship-based traumas and need help learning how  trust and connect with others.  The TBRI Mindfulness Strategies are designed to encourage parents to examine their own relationship  histories and how their histories influence what they bring to the relationships with their children.
