This event will give the basics of Trust Based Relational Intervention. TBRI is designed for use with children from “hard places” such as abuse, neglect, and/or trauma.

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.
