The Halo Project

A 10-week curriculum

for foster and adoptive families struggling with behaviors and attachment.

Program Information


The HALO Project Curriculum was developed by Cindy Lee in 2013 to meet the needs of foster and adoptive parents struggling with how to best support their children with complex needs following experiences of trauma. It incorporates Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI), developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross from Texas Christian University. This is an evidence based model that has shown amazing results for this population of children and families in need.

The HALO Program is a ten-week intensive counseling program. The program offered in early 2024 will be targeted for children ages 8-12 and is available for 6 children/families at a time. The program is divided into three categories: Trauma Education Classes (TEC), Kids Club, and Family Therapy sessions. All together families receive 50 hours of therapy during the 10 weeks (20 of group for parents, 20 of group for the children, and 10 hours for each individual family together). 

We are currently accepting applications for the following HALO Sessions.

The Halo Project 10-week program includes:

TEC Classes

Classes are limited to 12 caregivers and each class is 2 hours in duration. Classes teach connecting, empowering, and correcting principles of TBRI through experiential exercises, group discussion, and role play. TEC is facilitated by a licensed therapist.


Kids Club

This occurs at the same time as TEC classes and each child is paired with a TBRI trained one-on-one buddy to support their emotion regulation and skill building. The activities in kids club are designed to teach feeling expression, emotion regulation, and life value terms associated with TBRI. This club is led by a licensed clinician.  


Family Therapy Sessions

Sessions focus on teaching connection through child-led play using TBRI principles and role play of skills learned in TEC and Kids Club. Trauma processing through use of storytelling, play therapy, and life books is also included. Therapists draw on their training in a variety of modalities, including Internal Family Systems, and EMDR.
