Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI)

TBRI was developed by TCU Child Development Center (http://child.tcu.edu).

It is a therapeutic parenting model that involves TheraPlay activities at it's core. This fun-filled parenting style is for any parenting wanting a healthy relationship with their child. Whereas, TBRI was originally designed for parents who have adopted a hurt child; we now know that it is very successful at helping parents and children communicate better together and be a healthier family.
