Introduction and Overview of Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®)

Chinese Children Adoption International

May 06, 2017 Colorado
Education
Show event description and sign up to attend

What is TBRI®? TBRI® is a holistic intervention developed by Drs. Karyn Purvis and David Cross at the TCU Institute of Child Development (ICD) that has been developed over the past decade. It is an evidence-based practice that meets the need of the whole child. This is an approach to care giving that is developmentally responsive to trauma and is attachment-based. The goal is to provide deep insight about the impact of a child’s history on their long-term development, to create a framework for practical intervention and application, and to enhance understanding about how to interpret behavior and to respond appropriately.

Raising Black Girls

Raising Black Girls

Raising Black Girls is an honest dialogue about some of the tough realities and complex issues that Black children may experience and how their parents can guide, support and prepare them for a society that is far from color blind.

Join us for a moderated panel of African American women. Our panelists come from varied backgrounds. Some were transracially placed as young children. All are distinguished professionals in their respective fields.

They will reflect back to their childhood as well as their current role as mothers of Black girls. They will share openly and honestly about the types of discussions that are taking place in their own homes, as well as the everyday fears they have about their daughters’ safety and how they are raising them to become strong Black women.

We will pose to the panelists the concerns we have heard from adoptive families who are raising Black girls. Concerns such as:

1. Low self-esteem around hair and body images.

2. Addressing stereotypes of Black girls as disruptive, defiant and sassy.

3. How to raise strong, confident Black women.
