“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®). 


This six-hour workshop is based on the core principles of Trust Based Relational Intervention®- Connecting, Empowering, and Correcting- as well as the 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 examples, video clips, experiential activities, and discussion, with just enough theory to glue together the practical suggestions.


Trust Based Parenting...In Real Life is regularly held at the Central Texas Attachment & Trauma Center.  The next workshop is not currently scheduled.  Please check back often!



A frequent teacher and trainer, Robyn is a Trust Based Relational Intervention® Educator and a Circle of Security Parent Educator.   Robyn travels throughout Texas and the United States to provide parent training, workshops, and speak at conferences.  If you are interested in hosting Robyn, please email her for rates and availability.
