Empowered to Connect Simulcast

Presented by Empowered To Connect and Show Hope at First Baptist Church Portland, Portland TN

Apr 10 - 11 2015
Empowered to Connect Simulcast

Empowered To Connect, together with Show Hope, hosts the Empowered To Connect Simulcast — a two-day conference designed to help adoptive and foster parents, ministry leaders, churches, and professionals better understand how to connect with “children from hard places” in order to help them heal and become all that God desires for them to be. The conference features Dr. Karyn Purvis together with Michael & Amy Monroe, and 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, therapists and others.

CEU CREDITS ARE AVAILABLE FOR PROFESSIONALS. CEUs from the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) will be offered to professionals for all conference learning sessions without charge, pending verification of your attendance. PLEASE BE ADVISED: CE credits are for licensed professionals only and are not the same as adoptive/foster training credits. Each parent will receive a certificate of attendance. The certificates will be handed out at the end of each day, per parent. Attendees are responsible for providing the certificate to their agency, and it is at the agency’s discretion whether or not to count participation toward training credits. To be eligible with your agency to receive training credits, each participant will need to turn in to their agency a copy of each certificate and it is beneficial to also provide them the schedule of the conference. There is no need to sign up for adoptive/foster training credit.
