CASA is grateful to Lakeland Spectrum Health for funding our TBRI training and initiative. The purpose of this training is to provide CASA Volunteers with a background in TBRI that you may use when interacting with children or families. We know TBRI can be confusing to apply in specific circumstances. To that end, this grant provided for individual consultations for CASA Volunteers on this topic.
CASA engaged with professionals at Andrews University Center for International Trauma. These professionals have been extensively trained in TBRI practices and have hands-on experience applying these interventions both in the home and classroom. During your advocacy you are welcome to contact Andrews directly to ask specific questions about how to best use TBRI with your CASA child/ren. This service should not be used for general information or updated training. To reach out, please follow the following procedure:
CASA also has copies of the book, The Connected Child to provide to our volunteers. This book is a wonderful overview of TBRI for parents and caregivers. Let us know if you would like a copy.
Ways to help children learn new behaviors
Understanding how to develop healthy relationships
Daily reminders of useful ways to engage children
These conversations employ the expertise and experience of the Karen Purvis Institute of Child Development and Raise the Future team members to highlight and discuss TBRI in action. They are intended to support continued learning and implementation of TBRI following the completion of the TBRI Caregiver Training Series administered by a TBRI Practitioner.
