Event description

Description

Grace Church and Eastview Christian Church are excited to host the Empowered To Connect Conference via Simulcast. This is 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 other staff from The Institute of Child Develpment at Texas Christian University. The conference 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. Check-in will be at 8:30am on 04/07/2017 with the conference beginning promptly at 9:00 am and ending at 5:00 pm both days. There will be a 1 1/2 hour break for lunch on your own each day.

Eleven continuing education credits are available for professionals. Each professional interested in receiving hours and a professional certificate is required to register and pay a separate fee at ​www.etccontinuingeducation2017.eventbrite.com, in addtion to registering on this page. One change in 2017 is that the National Association of Social Workers now considers the simulcast a distance learning event. This classification will require professionals desiring credit from NASW to complete a posttest after attending the conference. Additional details will be sent to registered professionals and they must indicate they would like to pursue this option when registering. Attendance certificates will be available for foster parents. Please contact your agency directly to determine if additional information is needed from the conference.

If you have any questions regarding the simulcast please feel free to contact Hallie Harmon at hharmon@agapecounselors.net or Marianne Gross at mariannestantongross@gmail.com
