Virtual TBRI Training

by Maren Baker (foster, adoptive mom, former CPS worker, and foster parent trainer)

Do your children’s behaviors have you baffled? Has this crazy season brought up emotions in yourself that are surprising? Does everything feel like it is in a giant spin cycle in your head and heart?

Then don’t miss this training! (6 virtual sessions)

Learn the why behind the behavior. Understand how your brain works and its impact on your own behaviors and your children’s behaviors. Put a stop to the spin cycle with proven strategies and practical techniques that empower you and your kids.

What is TBRI?

TBRI® is an attachment-based, trauma-informed intervention designed to meet the complex needs of vulnerable children. It uses Empowering Principles to address physical needs, Connecting Principles for attachment needs, and Correcting Principles to disarm fear-based behaviors. While the intervention techniques are based on years of attachment, sensory processing, and neuroscience research, the heartbeat of TBRI® is the connection you make with your child.

Who is the training for, and who can benefit from it?

TBRI® is for the parents, teachers, children’s ministry staff/volunteers, and childcare providers of children who have experienced adverse childhood experiences such as abuse and neglect.

Why use it?

Because of their histories, children from hard places have changes in their bodies, brains, behaviors, and belief systems. While a variety of strategies may be successful in typical circumstances, children with histories of trauma need teaching and caregiving that meets their unique needs. TBRI® offers practical tools for parents, caregivers, teachers, or anyone who works with children to see the “whole child” in their care and help them reach their highest potential.

Why enroll in our virtual training?
