OrphanWise is unique in its emphasis on establishing trauma-competent communities both in the United States and around the world. Our team is committed to ensuring children are able to grow up in their own communities and cultures whenever possible. Through our “sister-training” initiative, OrphanWise facilitates TBRI® trainings in developing country through revenue generated by trainings hosted in the United States.
At OrphanWise, we’re passionate about sustainable, responsible development and follow-up support. By working with international practitioners in their own countries through our sister-training initiative, OrphanWise is able to ensure that cohorts around the world continue receiving culturally competent, timely implementation support after the initial training ends. In all of our work with international partners, our primary goal is to empower our trainees to help keep families together, whether they’re children’s home staff, child welfare professionals, social workers, foster parents, kinship families or the biological parents themselves.
OrphanWise has connections throughout the world, and has supported practitioners in Paraguay, Honduras, and Uganda.
TBRI® Caregiver Training
OrphanWise facilitates a Spanish-language version of its standard TBRI® training, which aims to participants to look beyond the surface and heal the long-term root of children’s behavioral issues.
Modified and Condensed Sessions
Depending on the needs of each specific audience, our team also offers short sessions on child development, emphasizing the importance of compassionate care, adequate nutrition and hydration and non-violent correction of problem behaviors.
Supporting International Partners
We believe in the local community’s ability and responsibility to care for its children. As such, OrphanWise is proud to work with and train TBRI® practitioners around the world, in order to establish trauma-competent communities.
