The Empowered to Connect Conference is being broadcast at locations across the country on April 5 and 6. Coyote Hill, thanks to the support of Boone County Children’s Services, will be one of the simulcast sites this weekend!
The two day conference features practical teaching that is designed to help adoptive and foster parents, ministry leaders, churches, and professionals to 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. It features Trust-Based Relational Intervention ( TBRI®) 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. The simulcast will allow parents everywhere access to these practical tools that help bring hope and healing to any child who has experienced trauma or the loss of parental care.
Soon, our Case Management team at Coyote Hill will be TBRI® certified. Our Home Parents and support staff are also taught this holistic approach to parenting children. To learn more about why we believe TBRI® is so effective in helping us connect with our children from hard places, click here.
