Nice to meet you again!
Hi, I’m Richard Dixson,
And I teach parents and caregivers how to transform their ineffective parenting patterns into empowering parenting behaviors so they can create drama-free households.
I’m originally from Monroe, Louisiana, where I was born when my mom was just a teenager. I also spent a few years living with my aunt in Kansas City. I’ve always had that entrepreneurial spirit — I always looked for a way to turn ideas into action. Earlier in my career, I worked in ministry, owned a real estate company, and even spent several years as a writer.
Then, 31 years ago, my wife and I adopted our son, Jordan.
That’s when I first realized that there had to be a better way.
Eventually, we discovered Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI), a methodology specifically developed to help children who have experienced harm, trauma, or adversity. My wife and I were so impressed with the strategy and outcomes that we decided to become trained facilitators through the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development at the Texas Christian University College of Science and Engineering.
Today, my wife and I are raising our four grandchildren: an 8-year-old, a 5-year-old, and 3-year-old twins.
To help children who’ve experienced trauma, you have to start with the parents and caregivers.
Traditional parenting models are outdated, and they’re not serving you or your kids. That’s why I’m on a mission to change the approach to parenting so that caregivers like you can feel confident in your choices and see your children thrive.
