TBRI® Classes for Resource Parents

Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®) is an attachment-based, trauma-informed intervention that is designed to meet the complex needs of vulnerable children. TBRI is designed for children from “hard places” such as abuse, neglect, and/or trauma. Because of their histories, it is often difficult for these children to trust the loving adults in their lives, which often results in perplexing behaviors. This training offers practical tools for resource parents to see the “whole child” in their care and help that child reach his/her highest potential.

Resource parents of COBYS Family Services, Lancaster County Children & Youth Agency, Berks County Children & Youth Services, Schuylkill County Children & Youth Services and other contracted agencies are invited to register for the 8-week TBRI course. Class meets 1 ½ hours each week.

Attendance Policy:

Our original intention was to only foster and not to adopt, but we have grown to love our foster daughters and have decided to adopt them, if that is what is needed. The greatest joy is seeing our children become secure and happy, learning about God and the world around them. – COBYS Resource Parents
