Event description

Description

The Empowered to Connect Conference is a two-day event presented by Show Hope and the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development.

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.

Featuring Trust-Based Relational Intervention® methods developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross from the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development, this conference helps bring attachment and connection in families.

The nationwide participation in the Empowered to Connect Conference is a significant testament to the impact and work of Dr. Karyn Purvis. Read more about her legacy of hope and healing here.
