What is TBRI?


TBRI is a holistic, attachment-based, and trauma-informed intervention designed to meet the complex needs of children from hard places. This training offers practical tools for caregivers to help children reach their highest potential. -Empower- address physical needs -Connect- meet attachment needs -Correct- disarm fear-based behaviors.

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.
