Theraplay and TBRI: Combining Attachment-Focused Interventions to Treat Trauma

February 23 @ 9:00 am - 12:15 pm CST

$81 – $90
CEs Available: 3  (No APT Credit)  |     One Day Training      |     Virtual

Have you ever wondered what other interventions might pair well with Theraplay? What is an intervention that focuses heavily on working with parents? Is there an intervention that heavily incorporates sensory processing into treating trauma? Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) might just be the intervention you seek. In this workshop, you will learn about the history of TBRI and how it was developed by Drs. Karyn Purvis and David Cross. You will gain insight into how TBRI’s three pillars of trauma-informed care are aligned with Theraplay’s four dimensions of parent-child relationships. Building strong attachment and empathy are hallmarks of both interventions and this course will help you understand the basics of how to marry the two.
