Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) is a holistic approach that is multidisciplinary, flexible, attachment-centered, and challenging. It is an evidence-based, trauma-informed intervention that is specifically designed for children who come from hard places, such as maltreatment, abuse, neglect, multiple home placements, and violence; but you will see that the principles apply to all children. TBRI consists of three sets of harmonious principles: Connecting, Empowering, Correcting Principles, which you will learn more about in this training module.
