About the Trainings:

TBRI Part 1

Matthew Willoughby with First3Years’ Safe Babies Program will present parts one and two of Trust-Based Relational Interventions (TBRI). TBRI is an intervention approach used by practitioners working with children and families to connect to positively impact development. TBRI® uses Empowering Principles to address physical needs, Connecting Principles for attachment needs, and Correcting Principles to disarm fear-based behaviors. In this training Matt will introduce TBRI and the guiding principles within this program. While the intervention is based on years of attachment, sensory processing, and neuroscience research, the heartbeat of TBRI® is connection.


TBRI Part 2

As a continuation from part one, Matt will present part two of this training which will dive deeper into program application and practice. Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) is a therapeutic model that trains caregivers to provide effective support and treatment for at-risk children. In this activity-filled training, participants will have opportunities to practice role-plays and talk through case studies using the principles of TBRI. TBRI has been applied in orphanages, courts, residential treatment facilities, group homes, foster and adoptive homes, churches, and schools


Bridges Out of Poverty

This event will be presented by Terie Dreussi-Smith, with Aha Process! Terie has adapted Bridges Out of Poverty to more closely align with health and healthcare to allow for change in services within the helping fields. Recent conversations have transferred her focus for Bridges Out of Poverty toward its implications for health systems and medical practice. She began presenting “Bridges Into Health” and worked closing with a number of healthcare providers and public health groups, which produced promising results using the Bridges lens. Today Ms. Dreussi-Smith continues her work in this area, as well as in developing new models for using Bridges Out of Poverty within every aspect and sector of the community. As a consultant, Ms. Dreussi-Smith’s presentations for aha! Process include A Framework for Understanding Poverty, Bridges Out of Poverty Health, Bridges to Health and Healthcare, Getting Ahead in a Just-Gettin’-By World, Understanding and Engaging Under-Resourced College Students, and Hidden Rules of Class at Work.
