ADOPTION, ATTACHMENT AND TRAUMA SPECIALIZED COUNSELING
Allison Davis Maxon
TBRI® (Trust Based Relational Intervention) 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.
Safe, Precious and Heard is a community of foster, adoptive and kinship families. It embraces a biblical world-view and the Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) parenting model as the foundation for hope and healing. To join this private group, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
