“relationships in modern society. In our work, we find that the best predictor of your current mental health is your current “relational health,” or connectedness. This connectedness is fueled by two things: the basic capabilities you’ve developed to form and maintain relationships, and the relational “opportunities” you have in your family, neighborhood, school, and so forth.”

― Bruce D. Perry, What Happened to You?: Conversations on Trauma, Resilience, and Healing

Trust-Based Relational Intervention®

TBRI® is an attachment-based, trauma-informed intervention created by Dr. Karyn Purvis and David Cross at Texas Christian University. Originally, designed to meet the complex needs of vulnerable children, TBRI® has proved a valuable tool in classrooms, juvenile justice, law enforcement, churches, and corporate environments. TBRI® uses Empowering Principles to address physical needs, Connecting Principles for attachment needs, and Correcting Principles to disarm fear-based behaviors. While the intervention is based on years of attachment, sensory processing, and neuroscience research, the heartbeat of TBRI® is connection.

Making Sense of Your Worth for the Workplace

Self-worth is the fundamental aspect of our identity as individuals, highly valued in today's society. It influences our decisions and relationships. People with strong self-worth are more effective in their work, collaborate better, and achieve more. This eight-week program is tailored for those seeking the empowerment of positive self-worth and secure attachment. Implementing this program in the workplace for personal development has proven beneficial on multiple fronts. The Making Sense of Your Worth Curriculum guides participants through a structured process to enhance self-worth, developed by Cindy R. Lee, LCSW in collaboration with HALO Project International. Past participants have reported increased positive self-worth upon program completion. A recent professional participant said, “Making Sense of Your Worth not only impacted me personally it has made me a better manager.”
