“What is TBRI®?”
We are so pleased to present our newest video resource which answers that very question. The TBRI® Animate was created in collaboration with Cognitive story-telling and animation studio, most known for their work with RSA Animate. Using animation to share TBRI® was a dream of Dr. Purvis’s, and we are especially grateful to Producer/Writer of this project, Cynthia Hall, who cleverly and thoughtfully curated years of audio footage to allow this video to be narrated by Dr. Purvis herself. It is our hope that the TBRI® Animate will inspire parents and professionals across the world to bring deep healing to vulnerable children.
This is so informative and it can be easily applied. I had a friend that thought it easier to sneak away instead of telling her 1-year old that she was leaving. I tried to explain to her that this will make the child feel insecure. That it is important to tell a baby what you’re doing even though they might cry at that moment because later he’d look for her and feel lost and betrayed and then cry. She thought that because he was a baby, he wouldn’t understand– it’s up to us to give them that understanding.
This was very informative and wil be shared with my teachers. Thank you.
I am definitely sharing this video with my teachers
I love this video and want to implement it in a training for our teachers. Is there a way to get access to slides or print outs related to the video? I would love for them to not only watch it, but have something in their hands as well.
Hi Jayce, thanks for your comment. Unfortunately we don’t have any supplementary materials that go with the TBRI Animate. We do have some resources for teachers at this link: https://child.tcu.edu/tbri-for-teachers. We also recently launched a digital training called TBRI and Trauma Informed Classrooms, which is available here: https://child.tcu.edu/tbritic/. Hope that helps!
Thank you so much for this life changing information. I have fostered for many years and have four adopted children…(almost adults now) wish I had this information in their younger years…
