The Empowered to Connect Conference is a two-day event presented by Show Hope and the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development. The 2019 live simulcast is scheduled for April 5-6; however, Send Relief will rebroadcast April 26-27.

The conference features practical teaching that equips 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.

Cost: $20 per person (includes event materials, beverages and snacks daily; lunch will be on your own with time allotted in the daily schedule. You may bring your own lunch; refrigerators and microwaves are available.)
