Empowered to Connect Simulcast

Hosted by: Antioch Georgetown 

April 13-14, 2018 | 9am-5pm

The Empowered to Connect Conference is a two-day event presented by Show Hope and the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development.


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.

Featuring Trust-Based Relational Intervention® methods developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross from the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development, this conference helps bring attachment and connection in families.

The nationwide participation in the Empowered to Connect Conference is a significant testament to the impact and work of Dr. Karyn Purvis.

Who should attend the conference?

The conference content is beneficial for adoptive parents, foster parents, potential adoptive or foster parents, and professionals or ministry leaders serving children.

Will training credits for adoptive and foster parents be available?

Each adoptive and foster parent will receive a certificate of attendance. The certificates will be handed out at the end of each day, per parent. Attendees are responsible for providing the certificate to their agency, and it is at the agency’s discretion whether or not to count participation toward training credits. To be eligible with your agency to receive training credits, each participant will need to turn in to their agency a copy of each certificate and it is beneficial to also provide them the schedule of the conference. There is no need to sign up for adoptive/foster training credit.

Can I receive Continuing Education Credits by attending the conference?

Please visit our registration site for CE approval information and registration. An additional registration will be required for all professionals seeking continuing education. 

Continuing education is for licensed professionals only and is not the same as adoptive/foster training credits.
