Are you looking for parenting strategies to help you address your child’s behavior? Is your child exhibiting emotional breakdowns? Does your child have a trauma history?
Evidence based research confirms how neglect, abuse, institutionalization and foster care can impact a child’s ability to regulate their emotions and behavior. These risk factors, in addition to early life risk factors such as pre-natal stress, difficult labor or delivery, early hospitalization or medical trauma, have been identified as complex developmental trauma.
Trust-Based Relational Interventions® (TBRI®), is an emerging intervention model developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross (authors of the popular book “The Connected Child”) at TCU’s Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development. TBRI ® addresses early life risk factors and complex developmental trauma by teaching parents’ techniques and strategies that consider their child’s background and history.
Early life trauma shapes a child’s behavior and how they relate to individuals around them. TBRI can help prospective adoptive parents or current parents:
- Gain a greater understanding of the impacts of early life trauma on a child’s behavior and relational abilities
- Develop a parenting structure which encourages a child to build self-regulation skills
- Strengthen a child’s ability to form healthy attachments
- Learn specific techniques to address common problem behaviors in children from “hard places”.
