Caring for Children and Youth Impacted by Trauma

Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) 7 week program beginning October 22nd

Monday Nights 7:00 pm -9:30 pm



Foster, Kinship and Adoptive Parents are invited to join us for a free, trauma-informed training beginning October 22nd. Trust-Based Relational Intervention® will run Monday nights for 7 weeks from 7:00-9:30 pm. Children from hard places such as abuse, neglect and/or trauma often find it difficult to feel safe and trust the loving adults in their lives. This can result in perplexing behavior. TBRI® offers practical tools for parents, caregivers, teachers, or anyone who works with children, to see the “whole child” in their care and help that child experience hope and healing. Space is limited.
