Our research focuses on vulnerable children, specifically children with relational trauma, and interventions for this population such as Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI), which was developed in our lab. We focus on training, outreach, and research with families (adoptive, foster, and biological) and organizations serving children from ‘hard places’ such as child welfare agencies, schools, residential treatment facilities, juvenile detention centers, mental health organizations, and medical and law practices.
