Bringing Hope and Healing to Families
Show Hope is partnering with Empowered to Connect to present the Empowered to Connect Conference on April 7-8, 2017, at hundreds of locations. Come experience 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.
The Empowered to Connect Conference features Trust-Based Relational InterventionⓇ 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 those who are serving and supporting others, including social workers, agency professionals, church staff and ministry leaders, counselors, and therapists.
This event will help parents and professionals understand the needs of children and the impact of trauma. It will also present an overview of attachment research and sensory processing, as well as insights and tools for promoting connection and healing.
All professionals interested in receiving continuing education credit must register through this site. You will not be eligible for credit without a confirmation of registration and badge.

Though this conference is not pre-approved by other accreditation organizations, previous attendees of various professions have received CE credit for this event. Please explore options with your accreditation organization before registering or email email@example.com with specific questions.
Please be advised: CE credits are for licensed professionals only and are not the same as adoptive/foster training credits.
What are the fees to receive continuing education credit?
Prices vary based on viewing location and certificate type. This fee is in addition to any registration fees for viewing at the host site. Regardless of site, all professionals seeking continuing education credit must register here. Continuing education credits will not be available for any attendee who does not register.
Am I required to take a post-test?
If you would like a certificate with the National Association of Social Workers approval information and you plan to attend the Empowered to Connect Conference at a simulcast location, a post-test will be required. NASW requires event attendance and a score of 80% or higher for a specific session for credit to be awarded. The post-test link will be emailed to registered attendees following the completion of the simulcast. Certificates will be generated and emailed in PDF format after attendance and test scores are verified by Show Hope.
What will I receive when I register?
You will receive a confirmation of registration shortly after submitting payment. Prior to the conference, you will receive a printable badge you will bring to your host site. It will be scanned when you enter and leave the event to track your attendance and generate a certificate that will be emailed to you after the conference.
Can I register the day of the event?
Yes! Please allow up to five minutes from the time you register until you receive your badge via email. You will receive an email shortly before the conference with a barcode that will be used to track your attendance. This may be printed or scanned from a phone or mobile device.
I am an adoptive or foster parent who must submit proof of attendance to my agency. Should I register here?
No. This registration is only for those seeking professional credits. There is no need to sign up for adoptive/foster parent training credit. Certificates of attendance will be available at your host site each day. You will be responsible for submitting the certificate to your agency, and it is at the agency's discretion whether or not to count participation toward training credits.
What if I am registered but can no longer attend?
Unfortunately, no refunds will be granted. Registrations may be transferrable to another attendee. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
