Holt-Sunny Ridge Children's Services and The University of Chicago Adoption Center are excited to announce the fourth of four workshops on Trust Based Relational Intervention® (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 Intervention® (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.
The fourth workshop in this series will focus on the TBRI ® principle, "Correcting." 
Goals for this workshop include: 
  • laying the foundation for understanding how to balance structure and nurture during interactions with children, 
  • enhancing understanding of the TBRI ® IDEAL Response © and Levels of Response ™, 
  • and to communicate that after behavioral episodes children should feel content and connected to their caregiver and have changed behavior
Workshop fee: $35 per person, including workbook; 30 people maximum.

CEU's for LSW/LCSW for additional $10; forms for foster family DCFS self-submission training credits available; no child care provided. 
Register by Tuesday, December 2, 2014; no refunds for participant cancellation; 
lunch: preorder or bring your own.
