The CMR North Children’s Centre has expanded their fostercare training by including the “Trust-Based Relational Intervention” program as part of their training program for foster parents.
Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) is a therapeutic parenting method that trains foster parents to provide effective support and healing parenting to at-risk children. This program was developed by Dr. K. B Purvis and Dr. D.R. Cross from the Institute of Child Development, Texas Christian University, USA. At-risk children are children that have experienced complex developmental trauma and the CSC is daily confronted by these children “from hard places”. Professional intervention is extremely important, but therapists usually have only one hour a week to spend with an at-risk child. It is therefore up to the foster parents, in whose care they spend the vast amount of hours, to provide stable, healing, nurturing and loving relationships where their relationship-based trauma can be resolved.
