What Is the Empowered to Connect Conference? 

Show Hope’s Empowered to Connect Conference offers 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.

The past two conferences have included presentations on Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®) methods developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross from the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development at TCU, which exists to bring attachment and connection in families. The nationwide participation in the Empowered to Connect Conference is a testament to the impact and work of Dr. Karyn Purvis. Read more about her legacy of hope and healing here.
