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, counselors and therapists. We are changing it up for the 2020 Empowered to Connect Conference, presented by Show Hope.
In years past, we have hosted a live event that has been available via simulcast. For 2020, however, the conference will be a rebroadcast of the 2018 Empowered to Connect Conference along with a viewing guide and new practical application content.
If you are interested in collaborating on this training with us, please contact Lindsay Bragdon, Adoption Program Director, at (207) 873-6350.
