    "When you connect to the heart of a child, everything is possible." -Dr. Karyn Purvis

    Attachment disorders are one of the most difficult things to address in treatment. Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) is a therapeutic model developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis. It was originally developed to help children “from hard places” heal, empower them to connect with safe people, and experience secure attachment. For children and teens that have experienced trauma, secure attachment is a vital component required for processing and healing. But TBRI is not just for children that have had significant adverse life experiences, it’s for anyone that wants to experience a deeper, more meaningful connection with their child. 

    The following information is from The Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development:

    TBRI® is an attachment-based, trauma-informed intervention that is designed to meet the complex needs of vulnerable children. TBRI® uses Empowering Principles to address physical needs, Connecting Principles for attachment needs, and Correcting Principles to disarm fear-based behaviors. While the intervention is based on years of attachment, sensory processing, and neuroscience research, the heartbeat of TBRI® is connection.

    The following video is from The Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development and is narrated by the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, who dedicated her life and career to impacting the lives of children and teaching others to do the same.
