We utilize a therapeutic model of care, Trust-Based Relational Intervention, or TBRI, which is based on brain research focused on how trauma affects the developing brain and how best to offer healing from that trauma giving children the tools they need to overcome the effects of trauma, abuse, and neglect.
The program was created by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross, founders of the Institute of Child Development at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas. TBRI was developed for children who have suffered from trauma, such as abandonment, neglect, or abuse. With experiences like these, it is sometimes difficult for children to trust the loving adults surrounding them. TBRI offers tools and training for parents, caregivers, teachers, or anyone who works with children.
“Imagine a world where every child’s need is met by a loving adult.”
– Dr. Karyn Purvis
