Question of the Day: TBRI Who is it for and who should use it?

Answer: TBRI® is designed for children from “hard places” such as abuse, neglect, and/or trauma. Because of their histories, it is often difficult for these children to trust the loving adults in their lives, which often results in perplexing behaviors. TBRI® offers practical tools for parents, caregivers, teachers, or anyone who works with children, to see the “whole child” in their care and help that child reach his highest potential.💛

TBRI is woven into all of our family counseling at ICA. It is the reason our staff can truly be effective in helping children from hard places.👫

😃A day to relax and color: Who doesn't like digging through a big box of crayons, picking out the perfect page, and filling it in with beautiful color? Whether you are a "stay-in-the-lines" or "out-of-the-box" type, coloring is a great way to reduce stress and have fun. Better yet, it's a perfect opportunity to bond and make memories with a child. So, turn on their favorite music, roll up your sleeves, and color. Let's see your works of art ICA friends!
