Topic Support Group: TBRI Connected Child Book Club - 04/03/23 - 04/24/23 - Webinar

April 3, 2023 to April 24, 2023

Join us for Book Club! The CaRES team leads you through a reading and discussion of The Connected Child by Karyn Purvis and David Cross. 

Please acquire the book, "The Connected Child" by Karyn Purvis and David Cross and read Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 prior to the first discussion.
The book can be found on Amazon and many local retailers. It is also on Audible. 

The Connected Child will help you lovingly guide your children and bring renewed hope and restoration to your family. 

We’ll dive into the meaning and topics of TBRI during the four weekly meetings, plus discuss new strategies for building connection and managing behaviors. 

The series includes... 

• The connection between what children have experienced, their struggle with difficult behaviors, and how we can move forward with connection. 

• Providing structure and a nurturing environment for children, which includes disarming fear and providing felt safety. 

• Nurturing while addressing challenging behaviors and strategies to make life easier during those challenges. 

• Brain chemistry and impact of trauma on the brain. 

• Addressing your own needs, healing, and self-care as caregivers. 

8 hours of training credit will be awarded to those who complete all 4 sessions of the book club. 

The day before the scheduled event, you will receive an email with the link to join the book club. This book club will be held on the zoom platform. 

We look forward to having you join us!

Sharon Colomb -

Sherry Colomb is a Development and Facilitation Specialist working with the Caregiver Training Team. With a background in Elderly/Disabled Adult case management, Sherry’s interest in child welfare began with her decision to become foster parent in 2005. Training and support were essential in her personal journey as a foster and adoptive parent, and she now feels privileged to be able to support other caregivers in this way.

Sherry finds one of the most rewarding parts of her job to be the opportunity to share her passion for seeing families reunify, and watching caregivers catch the vision for the unique and powerful role they can play in this process.

With deep respect for the value of our caregiver’s time, Sherry strives to make the caregiver courses the Alliance develops and presents meaningful, engaging and easily utilized in the in- home environment.

In 2021 Sherry became a Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) ® Practitioner and is excited to be able to share TBRI Principles with the caregivers of Washington State.
