Building a Foundation for Parenting Children from Hard Places

Families Are Forever and Children’s Home have teamed up to provide essential training based on Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI), a therapeutic model that trains parents to provide effective support and treatment for children who come from a place most likely very different from your own. You’ll gain knowledge that many who have gone before you have discovered about welcoming a child from a ‘hard place’ into your home and family. We’ll also strengthen your family’s foundation so that as a parent, you have the tools and knowledge needed to best meet your child’s needs.

Level 200: Learning to Connect with Your Child

Our 200-level courses were created to take parents deeper into the subjects of bonding and attachment and the practical ‘how-tos’ of parenting a child from a hard place using Trust-Based Relational Intervention™ (TBRI). These classes – while both practical and idea-rich – will add valuable insights into the personalities and temperaments of each individual in your home. Through each series of articles, videos, and assessments, you’ll learn how to further connect and engage with your child.
