Empowering Families in 2018
When we begin the new year, we hope to make improvements and strides forward in the months to come. In the areas where we have seen challenges, we hope to grow. As evidence demonstrates, Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) has brought about lasting and healing results for kids who’ve experienced trauma. In 2018, Project 1.27 will be offering caregiver training in this intervention to help encourage parents that they are not alone in their struggles, AND there is hope in building connection with children from hard places.
The Empowering Principle in TBRI attends to helping children experience felt safety by meeting physiological and environmental needs. We’ve all heard about eating frequent nutritious snacks and drinking plenty of water, but did you know that ensuring such a diet can reduce aggressive behaviors and emotional meltdowns? In addition to highlighting the importance of diet, the Empowering Principle also addresses the crucial roles of physical and sensory activities. Many children who’ve experienced abuse or neglect struggle with registering sensory information. Practicing different physical and sensory activities with children facilitates healing while also developing your relationship.
There is a wealth of interesting and practical information about how to care for kids who’ve experienced trauma. But you don’t have to take our word for it!
