TRUST-BASED RELATIONAL INTERVENTION

TRUST-BASED RELATIONAL INTERVENTION®

Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI) is an attachment-based, trauma-informed, whole-child approach to meeting the needs of children and youth who have experienced early adversity, toxic stress, and/or relational trauma. The TBRI® model was developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross to address the effects of early adversity and relational trauma through three sets of practice principles: Connecting, Empowering, and Correcting.
The SOURCE partners with others in the community to support the implementation of TBRI® in a wide-variety of settings.
