Empowered 2 Connect


The Empowered to Connect Conference features practical teaching in a safe and supportive community as we work to equip families, caregivers, churches, and professionals to better serve children impacted by adoption and foster care. It features 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 church staff and ministry leaders, social workers, agency professionals, counselors, and therapists.
