WHAT IS TBRI®?
Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®) is an attachment-based, trauma-informed, whole-child approach to meeting the complex needs of children and youth who have experienced early adversity, toxic stress and/or relational trauma. TBRI was developed at TCU’s Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross to address the effects of early adversity and relational trauma through three synergistic principles: Connecting, Empowering, and Correcting.
The Connecting Principle is designed to cultivate healthy and healing relationships through Mindful Awareness and Engagement Strategies. The Empowering Principle is designed to support physical needs and regulation through Ecological and Physiological Strategies. The Correcting Principle is designed to address fear-based behaviors through Proactive and Responsive Strategies.
