Trust Based Parenting…In Real Life~ Workshop in Jenison, MI {August 8, 2015}

June 7, 2015

“Children do well when they can” ~Ross Greene

…and it’s our job, as parents and helpers, to provide our kids with what they need, so that they can do well.  Trust Based Parenting is often called “Investment Parenting” by Dr. Karyn Purvis (creator of Trust Based Relational Intervention®).  “Pay now, or pay later”  ~Karyn Purvis, PhD. Heavy on connection and light on correction, this approach is based solidly on the science of child development and has an emphasis on HEALING children- not just compliance or obedience (although cooperation and respect are important values in TBRI®).

I’m heading back to my hometown and can’t wait to share TBRI® and more with all the amazing foster and adoptive parents in West Michigan.  Many thanks for Adoption Associates in Jenison for hosting the workshop!!

This six-hour workshop is based on the core principles of Trust Based Relational Intervention®- Connecting, Empowering, and Correcting, while incorporating some key components of Circle of Security™.  Robyn also brings in her training from some of the leading trauma experts, including Dr. Dan Siegel and Dr. Bruce Perry, as well as leading parenting experts, including Dr. Tina Payne Bryson and Heather Forbes.  Trust Based Parenting…In Real Life will be heavy on real life examples and role plays, with just enough theory to glue together the practical suggestions.

Are you in Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, or Lansing?  Even Ann Arbor or Northern Indiana?  Last years I was so blessed to have families travel several hours for Trauma Doesn’t Tell Time, so I decided to make this year’s workshop last a whole day.  You will receive a certificate that shows 6 hours of training.

Where? Adoption Associates, 1338 Baldwin, Jenison, MI 49428

What time? 9 am t0 4pm, with a 1 hour break for lunch on your own

Cost? $85/per person early bird (expires July 31; $95 after that)
