The Connected Child, authored by the late Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross, has been a life saver for multitudes of foster and adoptive families. Through Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI), Drs. Purvis and Cross have provided parenting tools unique to the challenges presented in parenting children with trauma backgrounds.
Dr. Purvis passed away in 2016 leaving a huge hole in the heart of the foster and adoptive community. But her legacy lives on in a new book about to be released in July 2020. The Connected Parent, co-authored by Purvis and adoptive mom and TBRI practitioner, Lisa Qualls, offers hope to every child, every parent, and every family.
Our own Sandra Flach sat down with Lisa Qualls for a conversation about her book. Listen in as Lisa, mom of twelve, shares her painful adoption journey and how Dr. Purvis’s TBRI methods changed her family.
