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. Karen Purvis and Dr. David Cross, 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.

Learning objectives of the Empowered to Connect Conference:

  • Understand the specific needs of the whole child
  • Provide an in-depth look at the impact of trauma on children
  • Encourage parents to look at their own attachment style and motivation & expectations in helping their child develope secure attachment.
  • Provide a summary of attachment and key attachment research
  • Present an overview of how sensory processing and neurochemistry is affected in children from hard places
  • Offer insights strategies and tools parents need to achieve effective behavioral change in their children while promoting lasting connection and healing.
