Fort Bend County TBRI Collaborative to Host Free Intensive Trauma-Informed Training for Child Caregivers on June 11

June 04 2024

The Fort Bend County TBRI Collaborative is set to hold its next training on June 11, offering insight and guidance to professionals and caregivers working with children who have encountered trauma. This free, intensive 24-hour training is tailored to those who work with children of all ages who come from 'hard places', including situations of maltreatment, abuse, neglect, multiple home placements, and violence. However, it holds relevance for all child caregivers.

The Collaborative's mission is to support the healing journey of Fort Bend's young trauma survivors. This is achieved through the facilitation of training centered around Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI®), an attachment-based, trauma-informed intervention created specifically to attend to the intricate needs of vulnerable children. TBRI® employs Empowering Principles to meet physical needs, Connecting Principles for attachment needs, and Correcting Principles to neutralize fear-based behaviors.

The training is broken up into four segments of six hours each, starting with an Introduction and Overview. This is followed by sessions on the Principles of Connecting, Empowering and Correcting. Each session will take place at the Child Advocates of Fort Bend Training Room based in Rosenberg, TX.

Child Advocates of Fort Bend, a non-profit organization that has served 23,000 children aged birth through 18+ years since its inception in 1991, hosts the training. The agency serves child victims of sexual abuse, physical abuse, and neglect. It operates two nationally-affiliated programs: Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) and the Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC). With a staff of 51 professionals and more than 800 volunteers, the agency is often cited as a model for best practices in the investigation, treatment, advocacy, and prevention of child abuse.

Those interested in attending the event can register via Eventbrite using this link. For any queries or for more information, persons may reach out to Dana at
