The Hope for the Journey conference, hosted by Show Hope, is the best way to be exposed to Trust-based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®), principles and strategies, first and foremost. TBRI® was discovered and developed at the Karyn Purvis Institute for Child Development (KPICD) at Texas Christian University in 2005. It is an evidence-based, relational trauma-informed model of care for vulnerable children and youth with a theoretical foundation in attachment theory, developmental neuroscience, and complex developmental trauma. Although these principles and strategies of connection and attachment were discovered while serving children and their families who had adopted and/or fostered these children, the desired outcomes for all children and their families are the same. Developing healthy and secure relationships, early, based on mutual trust and respect, for a lifetime of healthy and secure relationships.
From the KPICD website:
“Trust-Based Relational Intervention® is an evidence-based, trauma-informed intervention designed to meet the complex needs of individuals who have experienced relational trauma. TBRI® has three sets of principles: Empowering Principles for meeting self-regulation needs, Connecting Principles for meeting relational needs, and Correcting Principles for meeting fear-based behavior needs. Because TBRI® is a principles-based approach, grounded in attachment and neuroscience research, it is effective across cultures in virtually any community or system of care and practice.
Because TBRI® is designed to meet the basic need of connection shared by all humans, it is truly for everyone. In particular, we believe that TBRI® can, and should be, applied regardless of any person’s age, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, ethnic origin, disability, or any other basis. TBRI® is not a faith-based intervention, and we invite anyone serving children, regardless of their religious affiliation, to explore TBRI® as a path to healing.”
