KPICD Welcomes Five New TBRI® Ambassador Organizations

Five organizations in the child welfare space were recently inducted as TBRI® Ambassador Organizations by TCU’s Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development (KPICD).

CASA of Montgommery County, CASA of South Mississippi, HALO Project, Immerse, New Zealand, Presbyterian Childrens Home and Services were recognized for their commitment to helping children, families, and communities thrive through Trust-Based Relational Intervention®.

TBRI® Ambassador Organizations are identified as key partners who have long-term relationships with the Purvis Institute and are furthering its mission at a systemic level using TBRI®, or Trust-Based Relational Intervention.

Dr. Danica Knight, Rees-Jones Director, said, “After careful review, it is clear to us that these organizations embody and are committed to KPICD’s vision – to bring hope and healing to children around the world. They help make this vision a reality by amplifying our impact and doing so with integrity, creativity, and tenacity.”

TBRI® is an attachment-based, trauma-informed intervention that is designed to meet the complex needs of vulnerable children. TBRI® uses empowering principles to address physical needs, connecting principles to address relational needs, and correcting principles to disarm fear-based behaviors. TBRI® prioritizes connection as a path to healing for children and families who have experienced trauma. It has been used across a variety of contexts, and TBRI® Ambassadors have the distinction of using TBRI® to bring deep change in systems of care and practice.
