This workshop, presented by Angie Dickey and Lisa Williams, LPCA, will introduce Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRIĀ®). TBRIĀ® is an attachment-based, trauma-informed, evidenced-based intervention that is designed to meet the complex needs of vulnerable children. Presenters will introduce information that enhances insight about how a child's history impacts their development; introduce a framework for practical intervention and application; and discuss how to interpret behavior and respond appropriately.

Angie is a bio and adoptive mom of five, with 29 years of parenting experience and ten years experience in adoption-related issues. She worked with several mental health trauma specialists across the country to gain a better understanding of the complex developmental trauma that can occur in children, specifically who are adopted. Through somatic experiencing and attachment work, Angie expanded her skill set and knowledge of attachment development and implications on adopted children. In 2014, Angie acquired the title of Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) Practitioner through the Karyn Purvis Department of Child Development at TCU in Fort Worth, Texas. She is currently completing her Masters of Arts in professional counseling and will combine her trainings and education in her work as a mental health professional. Angie's desire is to give a voice to the victims of childhood trauma.

Lisa is a North Carolina licensed professional counselor associate (LPCA), a bio and adoptive mother of six, and former foster parent for Alamance County Department of Social Services. She also holds the title of Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) Practitioner from the Karyn Purvis Institute for Child Development, a program of the Department of Psychology at the TCU College of Science and Engineering in Fort Worth, Texas. As well as her formal training, Lisa brings 30 years of parenting experience, and a decade of experience in parenting the traumatized child into her counseling private practice, where she works with children, adolescents, and adults, utilizing attachment-based and cognitive behavioral approaches.ATI is an NBCC provider, and continuing education credits are available for mental health professionals for a small fee.
