The Empowered to Connect conference is designed to help adoptive and foster parents, ministry leaders and childcare professionals learn to connect with children who have experienced grief or trauma - children who come, as Dr. Purvis says, from "hard places." The conference will offer hands-on, practical tips to engage with and support at-risk children.
Conference sessions will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Pacific & Central time zones) both days, with a break for lunch.
