The Event

In partnership with Hearts Wide Open, Arise is excited to present the 'Empowered to Connect' global conference via video streaming. 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 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, childcare providers, and extended family members.

The conference will run over two full Saturdays from 08:30-16:30 and we encourage you to attend both events:

Saturday 4 May covers 'TBRI & Trauma' and 'Connecting' and Saturday 1 June covers 'Empowering' and 'Correcting'.

The conference ticket is subsidized and includes video screenings of conference and a course manual. Lunch is not included in the ticket price but is available as an optional extra. For any questions, please contact Arise on 021 633 4058 or [email protected]
