Would you like to equip your staff and/or clients to better meet the emotional and behavioral needs of the kids you serve?
Nurturing Change is now offering TBRI® Training Classes to schools, churches, social service agencies, and other organizations that serve kids and families.
Our TBRI® classes will train your staff and clients in a trauma-informed intervention that will empower them to bring emotional healing and behavioral transformation to children and teens. Although these trainings were originally designed to address the unique needs of kids who have experienced adversity, these principles will help your team prevent and address challenging behaviors with any child, while building connection.
Please see below for the training classes we are presently offering. (In some cases, we can design a training specific to your organization's needs.) Classes are offered virtually (in most cases), and our 4 hour classes can be divided into two 2 hour sessions, if needed.
To inquire about pricing and to discuss your organization's specific needs, please complete our brief training inquiry form.
Note: These trainings are being offered to organizations with special permission from the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development (KPICD) at Texas Christian University. TBRI® Caregiver trainings are not to be confused with the TBRI® Practitioner trainings, offered by the KPICD.
