The Power of Empathy

Trauma Informed Care Resources

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.

MRBN promotes resilience in Maine’s communities, children and families by increasing the understanding of the impacts of traumas and stressors such as Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) and the importance of promoting family and community protective factors and resilience-building relationships. We aim for a comprehensive, cross-sector, and systematic approach to foster education, awareness and action.

The Maine Children's Trauma Response Initiative is focused on creating a statewide trauma-informed system of care for children and youth exposed to violence. T
