What is TBRI?

TBRI® is an attachment-based, trauma-informed intervention that is designed to meet the complex needs of vulnerable children.


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.

Colleen Crawford is the Family Mental Health Promotion Director and also an Entrepreneur. 

She became a TBRI® practitioner in October of 2020 and has been busy partnering in TBRI® trainings ever since.  Some of those she trained include The YMCA staff, Goshen Valley staff, DFCS staff, adoptive and fostering parents, biological parents, Walker County School system staff, Chattooga County School System students, church parents/caregivers, and more. 

She spends her time and effort sharing TBRI because it's a perfect fit with Family Mental Health Promotion, Inc.'s tagline - "What starts in the family - ends up in the world."

Mother of 3, she made her mistakes and had her wins. After years of searching for and providing parenting programs, she found TBRI which filled the gaps  and provided much needed tools for child and parent self-regulation skills and understanding. And TBRI gives tools that ALWAYS build the child/parent relationship and NEVER tears away at it. 

Colleen can also teach Making Sense of Your Worth - a program that goes hand-in-glove with TBRI. It helps people process inner mistaken beliefs they've adopted and adapted to and better see their own, true preciousness. 

Contact Colleen at for more information.
