"Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI) is an attachment-based, trauma-informed intervention that is designed to meet the complex needs of vulnerable children. TBRI uses Empowering Principles to address physical needs, Connecting Principles for attachment needs, and Correcting Principles to disarm fear based behaviors. While the intervention is based on years of attachment, sensory processing, and neuroscience research, the heartbeat of TBRI is connection.
By embracing Trust-Based Relational Intervention, Harris County Juvenile Probation Department is successfully changing the culture of care at their facilities from one focused on punishment to one of holistic hope and healing for the youth in their care. As a result of their TBRI implementation efforts emphasizing safe and healthy connection with youth, behavioural challenges have decreased as employee satisfaction has improved."
