Non-profit foster home to host trauma care training

TEXARKANA — Local nonprofit foster care support organization For the Sake of One will host its second annual Trust-Based Relationship Intervention training camp next week.

CRTI is an attachment-based, trauma-informed intervention designed to meet the complex needs of vulnerable children. TBRI uses empowerment principles to address physical needs, connection principles to attachment needs, and correction principles to disarm fear-based behaviors.

This training is useful for anyone who works with children and especially for educators and parents, as trauma has affected every child through COVID-19, according to a press release. The training will give participants an overview of the principles of TBRI and provide information on the effects of trauma on the brain and how to help children recover from it.

For the Sake of One’s vision is a community where every child has a stable home and every family has the tools to thrive. Its mission is to “share God’s love with local children and families by providing emotional, physical and spiritual support while serving as a hub to connect, equip and empower all community stakeholders in the child protection”.

The group supports social workers, foster, adoptive and biological families and provides training at IRTC.

The training will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 20-23 at Heritage Church, 5801 N. Kings Highway on the Texas side. The cost is $20 for each day or $70 for all four days. Participants will receive six hours of training and lunch is included.

All foster parents, adoptive parents and DHS caseworkers can attend the training for free and should email For the Sake of One for more information.
