TBRI® In Depth: Caregiver Mindfulness

In times of stress, children and caregivers might lean on survival strategies and “maladaptive” coping skills as reactions to difficult moments. This stress response often has origins in our relational attachment styles, which were established in our early years of life. Even for caregivers with a history of secure attachment, or for those who have done significant self-work to become “earned secure,” an acute life event or accumulated stressors can disrupt an otherwise healthy pattern of relating and regulating if left unattended.


In “TBRI® In Depth: Caregiver Mindfulness,” we will use the framework of Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®) to explore how and why insecure attachment styles might manifest during stressful times for children and caregivers. We will examine how TBRI® shifts the paradigm for caregiver and child from “maladaptive behavior” to “survival strategy.” We will develop an awareness of how these strategies often impede connection and healing when they are unaddressed, and consider trauma-informed mindfulness strategies for fostering connection, felt-safety, and mutual healing. We will define and normalize relationship “ruptures” as opportunities for re-dos. We will explore the “good enough” caregiver, and the healing potential of imperfect caregiving. In this way, we will promote mindfulness, self-compassion, and self-awareness as models for healing for children, families, and caregivers.
