Foster parents, YOU can fill the gap between trauma and resilience!

December 12, 2018

It’s easy to think sometimes that the professionals in foster children’s lives have all the answers and strategies for improving their challenging behaviors—therapy, medications, other medical interventions…but, you are the stability between professional therapy visits and day-to-day activities. You experience and respond to your child’s perplexing behaviors, and you see their daily challenges and successes. Which parenting skills will serve you best with children and youth who come from hard places?

Register for When Trauma and Discipline Intersect: Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI), a new learning experience in which caregivers will explore the acclaimed evidence-based model of interacting with any child or youth, and especially with those who have experienced trauma. Over a series of three classroom sessions, you’ll delve into questions like these:

  • What are the needs behind my child’s behavior?
  • How has trauma made my child’s brain, body, or belief system developmentally different?
  • What parenting strategies successfully build attachment with my child?
  • What do my child’s physiological needs have to do with their sensory experiences?

When you implement TBRI into your everyday interactions, you will be the antidote for your child’s negative behavior, allowing them to live more resilient lives and to learn how to effectively navigate their trauma backgrounds. TBRI is more than a strategy, more than tool—it’s a way of life.

Learners earn 21 training credit hours for completing this classroom course. Trainings begin in January!
