“When you connect to the heart of a child, everything is possible.”

– Dr. Karyn Purvis

The course is based on Trust Based Relational Intervention techniques pioneered in part by Dr Karyn Purvis. 


Dr. Karyn Purvis was the Rees-Jones Director and co-founder of the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, TX., the co-author of a  best-selling book in the adoption genre, and a passionate and effective advocate for children.

“If I could tell you my dream for every child in the world it would be to imagine a world where the cry of every child is met by a loving compassionate adult,” she once told an interviewer. “Giving voice to children is the heart and soul of what we do.”


The course is facilitated by Regina Chari, (Masters of Social Work – Washington University in St Louis), who herself was trained by Dr Pruvis.
