About this Event

The Methodist Children's Home Family Outreach Office in Bryan is partnering with The First United Methodist Church Of Bryan to bring to you The 2019 Empowered To Connect Conference.

The Empowered to Connect Conference features 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. 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 (KPICD) at TCU, 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 teachers, social workers, agency professionals, church staff and ministry leaders, and counselors and therapists. It equips ALL caregivers with tools to help with parenting of any child.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES OF THE EMPOWERED TO CONNECT CONFERENCE ARE:

  • To help understand the specific needs of the whole child, the principles of Empowering, Connecting, and Correcting, and practical steps that can help children heal.
  • To provide an in-depth look at the impact of trauma on children, including effects in their brain development, neurochemistry, sensory processing, attachment behaviors and ability to self-regulate.
  • To encourage the parent to look at their adult-attachment style and his/her motivations and expectations in helping his/her child develop a secure attachment.
  • To provide a summary of attachment and key attachment research, focusing on the role of attachment as the foundation for the parent/child relationship.
  • To present an overview of how sensory processing and neurochemistry is affected in children from hard places.
  • To offer insights, strategies and tools parents/caregivers need to achieve effective behavioral change in their children while promoting lasting connection and healing.
