Trust Based Relational Interventions Workshop


Holt-Sunny Ridge Children’s Services and The University of Chicago Adoption Center are excited to announce the first of four workshops on Trust Based Relational Interventions® (TBRI®), presented by Pam Shepard, LCSW and Linda Walsh, NP.

Are you looking for parenting strategies to help you address your child’s trauma history?
Trust-Based Relational Interventions® (TBRI®), is an emerging intervention model developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross (authors of the popular book “The Connected Child”) at the TCU Institute of Child Development.
Are you parenting, or planning to parent a child who has experienced any of the following?
  • -Abuse
  • -Neglect
  • -Multiple foster placements
  • -Orphanage care
Early life trauma shapes a child’s behavior and how they relate to individuals around them. TBRI can help prospective adoptive parents or current parents:
  • -Gain a greater understanding of the impacts of early life trauma on a child’s behavior and relational abilities
  • -Develop a parenting structure which encourages a child to build self-regulation skills
  • -Strengthen a child’s ability to form healthy attachments
  • -Learn specific techniques to address common problem behaviors in children from “hard places”.
