MCH Childcare Staff Receive Training from TCU Institute of Child Development

This week on the Waco campus, Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross from Texas Christian University (TCU) trained MCH staff from all campuses on Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI). Both Dr. Purvis and Dr. Cross teach at the Institute of Child Development at TCU.

According to TCU’s website, TBRI is based on a solid foundation of neuropsychological theory and research, tempered by humanitarian principals. It is a family-based intervention that is designed for children who have experienced relationship-based traumas such as institutionalization, multiple foster placements, maltreatment, and/or neglect.

This training will help equip our front-line staff to better meet the needs of children and youth in our care.

Here are some photos from the training the TCU team has done at the Home.
