Parenting kids with a trauma background requires a new set of tools - that's why there's training.
THE HOPE FOR THE JOURNEY SIMULCAST CONFERENCE
APRIL 23 - IN-PERSON
APRIL 24-MAY 31 - ONLINE
We have been hosting the Empowered to Connect Simulcast conference with multiple local churches for the past few years. Last year the conference was re-named Hope for Journey. We have love hosting this TBRI Trust-Based Relational Intervention online conference for Compelled to Care families.
The Hope for the Journey Simulcast Conference (formally the Empowered to Connect Conference) is a deep dive into TBRI (Trust Based Relational Intervention) and trauma informed parenting strategies that are essential for foster, adoptive and kinship parents and caregivers. It is also a great opportunity for anyone who works with children and youth who have experienced trauma like social workers, teachers, faith leaders, medical professionals, childcare professionals, etc. This conference features training from Daren Jones, the Associate Director of Training and Consultation Services and Amanda Purvis, a Training Specialist with the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development (KPICD) at TCU.
Here's what you can expect:
This training is best experienced in a group setting because it is a lot of information and being with others makes it more fun! MC's Ashley Wambach, President/Executive Director of Compelled to Care and Nathan LaChine, Region 5 & 6 Alliance CaRES Mentor will provide plenty of chances to win giveaways. You will also meet Alliance CaRES leaders who will help answer questions and provide next steps for ongoing training and support. Workbooks and snacks are provided. There will be a 1hr lunch break. Feel free to bring your own or eat off campus. Because of the content this is a kid-free event. Childcare is not provided.
