TBRI Parent Training: Helping Kids from Hard Places

Event Details

  • Date:


This eight-hour class offers in-depth training for caregivers of children with challenging behavioral issues. The class will introduce caregivers to the research and methods developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and her colleague Dr. David Cross, the founders of the Institute of Child Development at Texas Christian University. Dr. Purvis has coined the phrase “children from hard places” to describe children who have experienced difficulties in early development. The class will use the Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) through problem-solving scenarios to provide practical skills to caregivers so they can build a stronger caregiver-child connection, which leads to better behavior.

The class is taught by TBRI® Practitioner Brenda Crary, L.M.F.T. As a school counselor Brenda has had extensive exposure to children and families struggling with behavior issues. She will help you see the root cause that drives the behaviors and give you tools to help empower your kids for connection and correcting the behavior.

Lunch will be provided. If you made your own arrangements for childcare we offer vouchers to help cover your childcare costs. This class is a part of our Foster & Kinship Care Education Series(FKCE) to help you stay current with best practices in parenting. Thank you for all you do to help children thrive!
