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, in Franklin, Tennessee. 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.
This two-day-conference will be held at Church of the City and hosted by founding Show Hope board members, Dan and Terri Coley. Each day's sessions will run from 9am-5pm (check-in opens at 8am), with a one and one-half hour offsite lunch for attendees.
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 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.
