Jennifer Werden, BSW
FASD Parent Advocate at The Florida  Center

Jenn began learning about TBRI® in 2019 when she was deep in the trenches of needing help supporting her son and his needs. She initially completed the Caregiver Training in March 2020 and has repeated the course to hear from multiple practitioners. In May of 2021, she became a TBRI Practitioner after undergoing an intensive 40-hour training from the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development based at Texas Christian University. She jumped right in and hosted her first caregiver training in the summer of 2021 and has been supporting caregivers through a trauma-informed, connection-based, and attachment-focused lens since.  Jenn earned her bachelor’s degree in social work from Florida State University in 2021.  She is currently pursuing her master’s degree in the same field and is expected to complete the degree in early 2024.
