Pathways to the Heart; Beginning with the Children of Israel, we see that our heavenly Father is intentionally and actively working to win the hearts of His people. Often times, adopted parents find themselves needing to rebuild the foundation of the child’s belief system. We take a look at a biblical model, which offers a paradigm to do so. We then discuss day-to-day parenting strategies, which, when implemented, can help win the child’s trust and build their sense of value.
Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®) is a parenting approach that focuses on the developmental needs of the child. It is a trauma-informed intervention that is specifically designed for children who come from “hard places”, but you’ll see that the principles apply to all children. TBRI® consists of three sets of harmonious principles: Connecting, Empowering, and Correcting Principles, which you’ll learn about more in this training.
In partnership with Bethlehem Baptist Church, we will host the ETC Simulcast Conference
Featuring Trust-Based Relational Intervention® methods developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross from the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development at TCU to help bring attachment and connection in families.

Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®) is a holistic approach that is multi‑disciplinary, flexible, attachment-centered, and challenging. It is an evidence-based, trauma-informed intervention that is specifically designed for children who come from “hard places”, such as maltreatment, abuse, neglect, multiple home placements, and violence, but you’ll see that the principles apply to all children.

THE ANATOMY OF ANGER
What really happened between Cain and Abel?
We will discuss together how to develop a deeper understanding of what, specifically, feeds our anger.
Several people have agreed to share their journeys.
We want to take a look at strategies that can help to us grow in our capacity to regulate anger.
Seeing our child through the lens of attachment can help us understand their behaviors.
It is estimated that roughly 80% of older adopted children come into their new families with a chaotic or disorganized attachment style. This is not their fault – attachment styles are given to us by others. Healthy attachments are foundational to resilience, sound mental health, relational give and take, and healthy self worth. Broken attachments can experience healing and growth. We will learn the roots of attachment theory and how to assess your child’s attachment needs. We then look at various ideas designed to encourage healing.
We will review:
- Parenting goals
- Obstacles to our goals
We will spend some time discovering:
- Four steps to become your child's "Teen Whisperer"
FOUNDATIONS: Understanding the child I have, not the one I expected
In this seminar we unpack the effects of relational trauma in the child’s development. The child we want to love may not be ready to be loved. First we must work to restore trust and value. Understanding the trauma history of our child is a good place to begin. The goal of this seminar is to adjust our expectations and develop a merciful mindset and rethink how to best offer healing to my child.

Redeeming Shame Part II
"Understanding the powerful affects of shame is critical to healing a child filled with neglect, abuse and relational trauma. Equally important is that parents discover how their own shame might need to be to exposed. Shame can destroy the child’s sense of feeling safe and sabotages the healing process. Learning the difference between legitimate shame and toxic shame is a good first step. We want to discover ways to bring toxic shame out of the shadows and redeem it."
Three consecutive Wednesday Evenings: September 20, September 27, October 4

This training will begin with, “understanding the child I have, not the one I expected.”
We will unpack the effects of relational trauma in a child’s development and look at Biblical principles for developing a foundation of trust.
The goal is to adjust our expectations as parents so that we can offer a more merciful and developmentally appropriate mindset.
This class is sponsored by "imago hearts" ministry and Grace Church in Eden Prairie. Both parents are encouraged to attend, but totally understand if this is not possible. :)
Our primary audience is adoptive and foster parents, but we welcome anyone wanting to learn this helpful material. The class is designed for practitioners who are hungry for ideas on how to bring healing to the child (ren) in their home.
