For adoptive parents, resource parents, and caregivers of children and teens who have experienced early trauma or loss.
This support group will provide parenting tools and techniques to use with children and teens who have had early trauma and continue to struggle with regulation and healthy connection. Each session will have a learning segment, followed by an interactive time to process and problem-solve the unique challenges that each caregiver is experiencing with their child.
Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®) is an evidence-based therapeutic model that trains parents and caregivers in attachment-based, trauma-informed interventions to meet the complex needs of vulnerable children. TBRI® uses Connecting Principles for attachment needs, Empowering Principles to address physical needs, and Correcting Principles to disarm fear-based behaviors.
Series II: TBRI Attachment Principles – This series will focus on examining your own attachment pattern and how this impacts your relationship with your child. We will also focus on using connection strategies to help your child feel safe, regulate, and heal from trauma.
