TBRI® is a holistic approach that is multi-disciplinary, flexible, attachment-centered, trauma-informed intervention that is designed to meet the complex needs of children who have experienced developmental adversity, such as maltreatment, abuse, neglect, multiple home placements, and violence.

TBRI® uses connecting principles for attachment needs, empowering principles to address physical needs, and correcting principles to disarm fear-based behaviors. The principles are designed for use with children and youth of all ages and all risk levels.


“Early research from our lab assessed the neurotransmitters of at-risk adopted and foster children during the summer, and then again during the early weeks of school. This type of stress reactivity is a hallmark of children with histories of harm, putting them on a crash course for academic, behavioral, and relational challenges.

Educators often identify these children as their behavioral “frequent flyers,” who take significant time from instruction for behavioral management. Tragically, these children are often sidelined from the academic setting, and too often become those who drop out of school or end up in alternative educational settings. They are in desperate need of academic settings that are trauma-informed and can meet their unique challenges and needs induced by histories of harm.
– Call, Purvis, Parris, and Cross (Adoption Advocate, September 2014)
