Local training opportunity offered by Texas Christian University

Are you a professional who works with children and are interested in learning about ways to better manage challenging behaviors? Are you a parent who is interested in learning new ways to connect with your child? Have you heard about trauma-informed care but would like to learn more? If you answered yes to any of these questions, there is an upcoming training opportunity for you!  A two-day training on Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI®) will take place on Friday, Sept 14th and Saturday, Sept 15th at Washburn School of Technology (5724 SW Huntoon) from 830am-4pm. The training is hosted by Kansas Post Adoption Resource Center and will be led by instructors from Texas Christian Institute and the HALO Project.

Participants will learn the basics of how trauma affects brain development and practical ways to intervene and assist with children who have come from hard places. While TBRI® was initially developed for children experiencing foster care or adoption, it has proven effective with all children. TBRI® is a holistic, attachment-based, evidence based and trauma-informed intervention that is designed to meet the complex needs of all children. Created by Drs. Karyn Purvis and David Cross, TBRI® uses the principles of empowering, connecting and correcting to disarm fear and facilitate healing. This training will offer practical tools for parents, caregivers, teachers or anyone who works with children, to help those in their care reach their highest potential.

Registration for the event costs $40/person which covers the cost of materials, lunch and snacks. To register or learn more, contact Clairissa Maddy: 877-530-5275-x1357 or cmaddy@kcsl.org.
