Anthony and Lauren Troyer have been married for 6 years and have been foster parents most of their married lives. Although Anthony was already a high school teacher for at-risk youth, foster care opened their eyes to the reality of trauma in a whole new way. They quickly realized they needed more tools and strategies, so they dove into TBRI. Anthony is a TBRI Practitioner through Texas Christian University, and both Anthony and Lauren are trained to teach Empowered To Connect Courses as well. Get in touch with him at email@example.com.
