PRE-Work Required before attending series:
Read book, The Connected Child
by Karyn B. Purvis, P.h.D., David R. Cross, Ph.D.
Presented by Always With Hope in conjunction with Adoptive Families of SWMO.
This workshop empowers individuals to become agents of change by providing research based solutions, insights, and interventions. Parents, caregivers, teachers, and organizations will understand how early adverse experiences affect the brain and impact the daily life of our children. Attendees will learn strategies to positivity empower and connect with kids to improve the resulting challenges from early complex developmental experiences, learning Trust-based Relational Intervention (TBRI®) principles.
TBRI® is a holistic, attachment-based and trauma-informed intervention that is designed to meet the complex needs of vulnerable children. TBRI® uses Empowering Principles to address physical needs, Connecting Principles for attachment needs, and Correcting principles to disarm fear-based behaviors that many children struggle with as a result of earlier complex developmental traumas.
While the intervention is based on years of attachment, sensory processing, and neuroscience research, the heartbeat of TBRI® is connection.
Children from “hard places” have changes in their brains, bodies, and behavior. They must feel safe in order to access their whole brain so that they have impulse control, delayed gratification, cause and effect thinking, and improved behavior.
TBRI® is an intervention “for a wide range of childhood behavioral problems. It has been applied successfully in a variety of contexts, and with many children for whom other interventions have failed (e.g., medications, cognitive-behavioral therapies). TBRI® is based on a solid foundation of neurodevelopmental theory and research, tempered by humanitarian principles. It is a caregiver-based intervention that is designed for children who have experienced relationship-based traumas such as institutionalization, multiple foster placements, maltreatment, and/or neglect.
TBRI® is designed for children from “hard places” such as abuse, neglect, and/or trauma. Because of their histories, it is often difficult for these children to trust the loving adults in their lives, which often results in perplexing behaviors. 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 reach his highest potential.
Because of their histories, children from hard places have changes in their bodies, brains, behaviors, and belief systems. While a variety of parenting strategies may be successful in typical circumstances, children from hard places need caregiving that meets their unique needs and addresses the whole child.”
