Empowered To Connect: Post Adoption Conference in FL & IL

Much of CCAI’s Post Adoption Center’s class curriculum is based upon Dr. Karyn Purvis’ fantastic work in her Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) and Empowered To Connect programs.  A month ago, our own social workers received training in these programs.

Dr. Purvis will be speaking THIS WEEKEND in Orlando, FL!  Our CCAI-FL staff and many of our social workers will be attending this amazing event and we want you to be there, too!  This two-day conference will feature Dr. Karyn Purvis of Texas Christian University, a leading expert in the field of research-based interventions for children from hard places, of whom CCAI holds in the highest regard.

Dr. Purvis’s Empowered to Connect Conference will also be making its way to Chicago, IL this April!
