TBRI® Principles is a three-part series. You may take Modules 1 and 2 in any order you like. However, please note that at least two other TBRI® courses must be completed before enrolling in Module 3. These courses include Modules 1 and 2 of the TBRI® Principles and TBRI®: Introduction and Overview.  All TBRI classees are 6 hours

Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI®) Module 2: Empowering Principles - 05/16/23 & 05/23/23 | 5:30pm - 8:30pm

Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI®) Module 3: Correcting Principles - 06/06/23 & 06/13/23 | 5:30pm - 8:30pm

TBRI® is an attachment-based approach to parenting that is designed to meet the complex needs of children. TBRI uses the Empowering Principles to address physical needs, Connecting Principles for attachment needs, and Correcting Principles to disarm fear-based behaviors.

Trust-Based Relational Intervention® Empowering Principles  is designed to give insight into the roots of self-regulation difficulties common among children from “children healing from trauma.” We hope to give participants practical tools to facilitate learning and practicing self-regulation skills. Activities are structured so that participants will be invited to experience the world from a child’s point of view and also tailor their own learning to fit the needs of their unique home situation.
