Hi there! My husband and I are currently waiting to adopt. Through the waiting process we have felt like God has been calling us to foster care or parenting children from hard places. As a woman who does not have a college degree or business etc, or who has not quite yet had the privilege of being a foster/adoptive parent, is it possible to become a TBRI practitioner?
I seem to always miss the application time for scholarships and for the actual TBRI practitioner training. Will the next sign up time be in November again this year? Thank you for your help.
Hi, Renae, we publish all of the application deadlines and training dates at the beginning of each year. Here’s what’s happening in 2022: https://child.tcu.edu/2022-tbri-practitioner-training-dates/ Hope this helps!
I see registration opens today for the July 2022 training but cannot find link to apply for consideration. Do I need to register with TCU first or? I cannot find the link to apply to be considered and when that link does open & application sent in, do you pay the fee then or only if upon fact you happen to be approved for acceptance? Thanks!
Hi, Beth. You’ll find the link is now available. Payment is due upon acceptance into the training. There is no fee to apply.
I’m truly interested in your training I live in New Orleans, La. However do your organization offer financial assistance with training to become a practitioner? If so please get back with me.
Hi, Felicia. We offer scholarships for applicants that have been selected to attend our TBRI Practitioner Training Sessions. The first step is to apply. Hope that helps!
I would love to receive your training as I need it to work at the Children’s Shelter. I am unemployed and cannot afford the tuition. What are my options?
Hi, Jana. We have many free resources about TBRI. The TBRI Podcast is a great starting point, as is our YouTube Channel. Just search “The TBRI Podcast” on any podcasting platform and “Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development” on YouTube.
