Empowered to Connect

Emmanuel Church will be hosting a simulcast of The Empowered to Connect Conference.

About the Conference:

The Empowered to Connect Conference features two days of 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.

The conference content is beneficial for adoptive parents, foster parents, potential adoptive or foster parents, and professionals or ministry leaders serving children. Coffee, water, and light refreshments will be provided during the morning and afternoon breaks.

There will be a one-and-a-half-hour break scheduled for an off-site lunch each day. Local suggestions will be provided.

Session Topics:

  • TBRI Model (Trust-Based Relational Intervention™)
  • Understanding a child's history and the impact of trauma
  • How trauma affects children, including effects in their brain development, neurochemistry, sensory processing, attachment behaviors and ability to self-regulate
  • Foundations and strategies for behavioral change in the home and in the classroom
  • And much, much more!
