Karyn Purvis Institute

TBRI Ambassador Logo

Williamson County Juvenile Services is proud to be a TBRI® Ambassador Organization. TBRI®, or Trust-based Relational Intervention, is an attachment based, trauma-informed intervention designed to meet the complex needs of children and families who have experienced adversity, early harm, toxic stress, or trauma. TBRI® Ambassador Organizations partner with TCU’s Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development (KPICD) in our mission of bringing hope and healing to vulnerable children worldwide. These organizations have a relationship rooted in mutual trust and connection with the KPICD, and actively cultivate a TBRI® culture within their organization, from top leadership to the clients they serve. TBRI® Ambassador organizations have been thoroughly vetted throughout their TBRI® implementation process and are committed to partnering with KPICD through influencing systems of care and practice.  

Tara Stewart, Principal, and Roy Green, Character Education Coach, are TBRI® Practitioners alongside several of the Williamson County Directors, Counselors, and Juvenile Supervision Officers. All education and WCJS staff are trained by TBRI® Practitioners in TBRI® practices, making for a common language and continuity of care across the programs.
