Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI) Training

Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI) is a holistic, attachment-based, trauma-informed intervention designed to meet the complex needs of vulnerable children, who have experienced early childhood adversity, harm, toxic stress, or trauma.


While TBRI® is appropriate for children and youth of all ages and backgrounds, it is particularly effective for children from hard places, for whom traditional therapeutic and caregiving modalities have been largely unsuccessful.

TBRI® supports caregivers in understanding what should have happened in early development and, more importantly, how to support children in returning to a healthy developmental trajectory.

TBRI® addresses the neurobiology of trauma, early developmental risk factors, sensory processing challenges, self-regulation, attachment styles, and effective strategies for addressing challenging behaviors.

Although initially designed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross, foster and adoptive families, TBRI® has also been successfully implemented in home environments, child welfare settings, residential facilities, juvenile justice settings, hospitals, mental health agencies, law enforcement agencies, courts, and more.


This comprehensive training is offered in four modules, for a total of 20+ hours of training.
