Hope for the Journey Conference (formerly The Empowered to Connect Conference) began in 2010 with the aim of equipping parents, caregivers, ministry leaders, and care professionals to better serve children impacted by adoption and foster care. Over the past 10 years, the conference has grown to include research-based tools to promote attachment and connection in families such as 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. At its core, TBRI works to promote trust, attachment, and connection between caregivers and children by addressing physical and emotional needs while also disarming fear-based behaviors.
This conference is put on by Show Hope, a faith based organization with the mission to care for orphans by engaging the Church and reducing barriers to adoption.
Show Hope allows churches and organizations (like Empty Frames Initiative) to simulcast the event to help find others in your area or others who are like-minded on this journey to connect through the conference experience.
