Empowered to Connect Conference Simulcast

April 5 @ 9:00 am - April 6 @ 5:00 pm


Adoption Center of Illinois (ACI) is proud to be hosting a Simulcast of the Empowered to Connect Conference. This Two Day Simulcast will take place on Friday, April 5th from 9:00am-5:00pm and Saturday, April 6th from 9:00am-5:00pm at ACI (or another Chicago location if a larger capacity is needed).

Presented by Show Hope and the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development, this conference features practical teaching in a safe and supportive community to equip families and professionals to better serve children impacted by adoption and foster care. Featuring Trust-Based Relational Intervention® methods, developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross from the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development at TCU, this conference helps bring attachment and connection in families.

ACI encourages all families touched by adoption as well as prospective adoptive parents to register before space fills up! Conference workbooks and lunch will be provided.
