Heart for the Fatherless is hosting the Re-Broadcast of the 2019 Empowered to Connect Conference at Trinity Martial Arts in Richland, Wa. This conference features 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. 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 (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 social workers, agency professionals, church staff and ministry leaders, counselors, and therapists.This two day conference event will be held from 9am to 5pm both Friday and Saturday. Doors open at 8:30am each day. Coffee, water and light refreshments will be provided during the morning and afternoon breaks. There will be a 1-and-a-half hour break scheduled for an off-site lunch each day.
