  • Thank you!


Thank you so much for such and incredible TBRI training. This was such an incredible learning experience. I’m so thankful for the way you organized and facilitated our conversations. I learned so much and can’t wait to continue to put those practices into use with our daughter and future placements. I hope that someday this TBRI training can be something each and every resource family can experience before and/or during their first placements (with lots of great refresher opportunities thereafter).
