Description

Empowered To Connect, together with Show Hope, hosts the Empowered To Connect Simulcast — a two-day conference designed to help adoptive and foster parents, ministry leaders, churches, and professionals better understand how to connect with “children from hard places” in order to help them heal and become all that God desires for them to be.

The conference features the work of Dr. Karyn Purvis and 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.

CEU CREDITS AVAILABLE FOR PROFESSIONALS.

Continuing education credits from the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) are offered to professionals for all conference learning sessions.
