This past weekend several members of our Leadership Team spent two days at the Empowered to Connect Conference Simulcast hosted at Clover Hill Church.

Empowered to Connect (ETC) is an attachment rich community focused program that exists to support, resource, and educate caregivers.

ETC’s resources and trainings are especially helpful for caregivers of children who have experienced adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), toxic stress, and maltreatment. We fundamentally believe that every human being has great capacity to grow and overcome adversity when cared for in supportive, connected, and nurturing environments.

A fabulous group of instructors taught strategies for parenting and influencing children from hard places based on the model of Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI®) created by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross at the TCU Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development.

Many thanks to Clover Hill Church and our dedicated IntertwinedFamily team!
