Empowered To Connect, together with Show Hope, hosts the Empowered To Connect Conference — a two-day conference designed to equip families, churches and professionals to better serve children impacted by adoption and foster care.
The conference features Trust-Based Relational Intervention methods developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross from the TCU Institute of Child Development to help bring attachment and connection in families. This training 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, therapists and others.
A live simulcast of this event will be held at Cornerstone Church of Ames.
*After March 24, the price of attendance will increase to $20/person and $25/couple.
