TBRI® In Depth: Caregiver Mindfulness

 May 26, 10am-12pm

In times of stress, children and caregivers might lean on survival strategies and “maladaptive” coping skills as reactions to difficult moments. This stress response often has origins in our relational attachment styles, which were established in our early years of life. In “TBRI® In Depth: Caregiver Mindfulness,” we will use the framework of Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®) to explore how and why insecure attachment styles might manifest during stressful times for children and caregivers. We will examine how TBRI® shifts the paradigm for caregiver and child from “maladaptive behavior” to “survival strategy.” 



  • Understand how and why stressors might activate insecure attachment styles in caregivers and children;

  • Develop an awareness of how these “survival strategies” might impede connection, healing, and growth when they are not addressed;

  • Define and normalize relationship ruptures;

  • Promote mindfulness, self-compassion, and self-awareness in caregivers as models for healing;

  • Identify strategies to foster connection, felt-safety, and mutual healing between caregivers and children.


TBRI® Engagement Strategies and Rituals Coaching

June 9, 10am-12pm

In “Collaborating for Connection: TBRI® Engagement Strategies and Rituals Coaching,” we will take a deep dive into practices that build healing, attuned relationships with kids and teens. We will define TBRI® engagement strategies and consider how these practices can be applied within a variety of settings and across age groups.


  • Define TBRI® engagement strategies and consider practices for application within diverse settings and age groups; 

  • Consider how engagement strategies and rituals promote healing in kids and teens from hard places;

  • Collaborate via open forum discussion on ways to create meaningful rituals between caregivers, kids, and teens;

  • Troubleshoot perceived barriers to implementing engagement strategies and rituals;

  • Provide individualized feedback as needed to support ongoing skills acquisition and practice.

Nurture Group Coaching

June 17, 10am-12pm

Nurture Groups are one of the most important practices of Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI®), with the goal of teaching relational and regulation skills through play. They foster and develop four essential skills of meaningful relationships and secure attachment behaviors, including a child’s or teen’s ability to give care, to seek and receive care, to negotiate their needs with respect, and to know their autonomous self. They also provide a wonderful opportunity to build relationships between children and caregivers of all kinds. In this webinar, we will facilitate in-depth experiential learning on the process of Nurture Groups, as well as provide a space for planning and implementation of these strategies in a variety of settings, whether at home, in a classroom, in a therapy session, or a community center. We will also consider how we might use the components of Nurture Groups throughout our days to build connections and skills.


Prerequisite: Must have previously attended a 2, 4, 8, or 18-hour TBRI® Training by Hope Street. This training builds on previous presentations, and background knowledge is required.



  • Promote deeper understanding of TBRI® principles and interventions as trauma-informed care;

  • Identify and understand the 4 skills of meaningful relationships and secure attachment behaviors through experiential learning and coaching;

  • Develop strategies to effectively integrate Nurture Groups within diverse settings;

  • Troubleshoot potential barriers or challenges in facilitating Nurture Groups; 

  • Formulate unique and concrete implementation plans for each participant to utilize within their particular setting.

TBRI® In Depth: Back to School Transitions Coaching

July 7, 10am-12pm

Transitions can be hard for any child, and the result can often be behaviors which are challenging to parents and caregivers. As the back-to-school season approaches, we would like to create a space for parents and caregivers to consider strategies to navigate these potentially tricky times. In this webinar, we will consider daily and life transitions, and factors which can make children and teens especially vulnerable to these experiences. We will discuss how we might effectively scaffold transitions to make them more manageable, such as adjusting the bar of expectation, proactively addressing physiological needs, and adding connecting rituals. We will also remind caregivers of the importance of meeting their own needs during a season of transitions and consider their opportunities for proactive and responsive self-care. We will troubleshoot perceived barriers to effectively scaffolding transitions. Finally, we will provide individualized feedback as needed to participants to support ongoing skills acquisition and practice.   


Prerequisite: Must have previously attended a 2, 4, 8, or 18-hour TBRI® Training by Hope Street. This training builds upon previous presentations, and background knowledge is required.



  • Consider why daily and life transitions might be difficult for children and teens, and factors which might make them more vulnerable;

  • Discuss strategies for scaffolding transitions;

  • Remind caregivers of the importance and opportunities for their own self-care;
