Pre-Conference Event - Friday, March 27, 2020

Join us for an all-day TBRI (Trust-Based Relational Intervention) Caregiver Training!

This eight-hour pre-conference event offers in-depth training for caregivers (Foster/Adoptive/Kinship Parents, Ministry workers, Teachers, Social Workers, Childcare providers, and anyone who intersects with Children from Hard Places) of children with trauma-based behavioral issues.

The training will introduce caregivers to the research and methods developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and her colleague Dr. David Cross, the founders of the Institute of Child Development at Texas Christian University. Dr. Purvis has coined the phrase "children from hard places" to describe children who have experienced abuse, neglect, abandonment and/or trauma in early development.

Participants will learn how to use Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI ) through problem-solving scenarios to develop practical skills to build a stronger caregiver-child connection, which leads to better behavior. Taught by TBRI Practitioner Renae M. Dupuis
