TBRI® Caregiver Support Group

For parents and caregivers of children and teens who have experienced early trauma or loss.

This support group will provide parenting tools and techniques to use with children and teens who have had early trauma and continue to struggle with regulation and healthy connection. Each session will have a learning segment, followed by an interactive time to process and problem-solve the unique challenges that each caregiver is experiencing with their child.

Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®) is an evidence-based therapeutic model that trains parents and caregivers in attachment-based, trauma-informed interventions to meet the complex needs of vulnerable children. TBRI® uses Connecting Principles for attachment needs, Empowering Principles to address physical needs, and Correcting Principles to disarm fear-based behaviors.

Pay Attention to Attention (and Behavior Too!) – Weekend Class

After a pandemic hiatus, our popular attention classes have returned in-person!

This weekend class is designed for elementary age children (1st – 5th grade) who struggle with self-control and/or effortful attention (AD/HD).  We will focus on teaching children to exercise self-control in peer interactions, so that they can work productively and play appropriately. The in-person class setting will closely approximate classroom and social situations, so that your child can practice these skills in a representative environment. Parents will observe the class so they are better able to reinforce these skills through at-home practice.  

The group is led by Jeff Sosne, Ph.D., a child psychologist with more than forty years of experience. He specializes in helping children with attention and self-control problems, and has offered this class more than 200 times.
