Anchor Point (AP) announced it is excited to bring “The Empowered to Connect (ETC) Conference Simulcast” to the Houston area (in partnership with ShowHopeTM, an adoption-centered nonprofit organization founded by multi-award winning musician, Steven Curtis Chapman, and his wife Mary Beth, a best-selling author). The ETC simulcast is a two-day conference that will be held on Friday and Saturday, April 5-6th in League City. This conference will equip families, churches, and professionals to better serve children. Last year, Empowered to Connect was simulcasted worldwide in hundreds of locations, and this year Anchor Point is proud to, once again, be a host site for the Houston and Galveston area.
We especially know that kids who have experienced abuse, neglect, or trauma are among those that struggle, but TBRI works well even with children who are not struggling. Regardless of whether the child is in a biologically intact home or from an adoptive home, each child needs help and hope from caregivers and advocates to ultimately thrive in this world.
This 2-day event features Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI) methods developed by
Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross from the TCU Institute of Child Development. It is ideal for all 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, therapists and others involved with helping children. Attendees will learn how to connect with children from hard places in order to help children heal and become all that God intended.
Topics to be covered: Hope & Help for The Journey | Understanding A Child’s History and Its Impact |The Role of Parent History and Expectations in Connecting | The Attachment Dance | Understanding Sensory Process | The Neurochemistry of Fear | Helping Family Find the Education/Support They Need | Foundations for Behavioral Change.
CEU credits are available for some professions.
