TBRI® An Overview Putting the Pieces Together
This short video explains the principles and concepts behind Trust-Based Relational Intervention®, a proven method for enriching the lives of at-risk, vulnerable children, adolescents, and their families.

Children From Hard Places and the Brain

if there isn’t intervention. Children from Hard Places and the Brain features
experts Dr. Tina Payne Bryson, Dr. Karyn Purvis, and Dr. David Cross, and offers practical advice and tips for leading children of all ages – even teens – to new
levels of healing.

Attachment Why It Matters
Most of us think of attachment as a loving bond between parent and child. But, what happens if a child doesn’t get nurturing, consistent care from a loving parent early in life?

In this 2-disc video, adoptive parents share their struggles and successes in pursuit of answers. Experts Dr. Daniel Siegel, Dr. Bruce McEwan, Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross share their knowledge and offer tools to help parents enhance the attachment relationship.
