One event on April 27, 2019 at 9:00 AM


The Empowered to Connect Conference features practical teaching in a safe and supportive community as we work to equip families, churches, and professionals to better serve children impacted by adoption and foster care.  It features Trust-Based Relational Intervention ® (TBRI) methods developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross from the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development, to help bring attachment and connection in families. The content is ideal for adoptive and foster parents, those considering adoption or foster care, and those who are serving and supporting others, including social workers, agency professionals, church staff and ministry leaders, counselor and therapists.

Lunch will not be provided but there will be a 45-minute break as well as light snacks and water available. Event dates and times are Friday, April 26th 9am-4:30pm and Saturday, April 27th 9am-4:30pm. **Note: You do not need to attend both dates, but you could come one day for $10 by paying at the door.**
