The Hope for
the Journey Conference includes the Trust-Based Relational Intervention®
(TBRI®) model for caring well for children impacted by adoption and foster
care. The conference provides helpful information for parents and all
caregivers meeting the everyday needs of children.
Life Church and Cultivating Families also encourage participation
by church or faith community staff and volunteers because when your
community becomes trauma-informed, you are
making a commitment to pursue hope, healing, and restoration through
implementing compassionate, supportive policies and practices. You can start by
attending this conference. The Hope for the Journey Conference is Christian-based.
However, the information shared in modules 1-4, based on the foundational
principles of TBRI, is invaluable to all parents, caregivers, and communities
offering Learning Modules 1-3 on Friday, May 14. We will schedule Modules 4 and 5
separately. Date and time TBD.
