TBRI® Caregiver Training


Trust Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®) is an evidence-based parenting and intervention model developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross at the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development (KPICD) at Texas Christian University (TCU). TBRI® has been built on a solid foundation of neuropsychological theory and research, tempered by humanitarian principles. It is a family-based intervention, designed for children who have experienced relationship-based traumas such as institutionalization, multiple foster placements, maltreatment, abuse, and/or neglect.

Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI)® Caregiver Training includes the four modules of TBRI® training. Each module is six hours in length. These modules include:
  • Introduction and Overview: This initial course focuses on understanding the meaning of child behaviors, the brain chemistry of a child from a hard place, and how to help these children (and your family) heal and connect. Participants will learn tools they can put into action with their children immediately.
  • Connecting Principles: This course offers an in-depth look at connection and attachment and how to help children (and your family) heal.
  • Empowering Principles: This course provides an in-depth look at ways to empower your children physiologically, with sensory processing tools and information. As well as ecological strategies with self-regulation tools and ideas.
  • Correcting Principles: This course provides an in-depth look at Correction and discipline techniques that are effective with children from hard places.
