Together with "Show Hope" and "The Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development at TCU", Hearts Wide Open is excited to present the 'Empowered to Connect' 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 and we encourage you to attend both events:

Part 1 will take place on Saturday 27 April 2019, and covers 'TBRI & Trauma' and 'Connecting'.

Part 2 will take place on Saturday 4 May 2019, and covers 'Empowering' and 'Correcting'.

Conference fee includes:

  • Attendance at simulcast screenings on Saturday, April 27 and Saturday, May 4.
  • A comprehensive, printed workbook
  • A certificate of attendance
  • Snacks and refreshments. 

We have included a catered lunch option, which you can book for a small additional fee, for your convenience. Alternatively, please ensure to bring your own packed lunch for both days or take advantage of the opportunity to purchase a take-out meal at one of the local eating establishments within walking distance of the conference venue.

Social workers who attend both conference dates will qualify for 8 CPD points with SACSSP. 

Please also take note that childcare will, unfortunately, not be available at this venue.
