Course Description

One of the greatest challenges of caring for children from hard places is responding appropriately to negative or hurtful behavior without causing shame.

The I.D.E.A.L. response, taught in Trust-Based Relational Intervention, is a highly effective strategy for parents and caregivers that both corrects behavior while maintaining connection. In this mini course, LMFT and TBRI Practitioner Charlotte Fritz unpacks the 5 components to a healthy response and gives practical examples of using this strategy with kids in real life situations.
