The Hope for the Journey Conference equips parents, caregivers, ministry leaders, and care professionals to better serve children with challenging behaviors or past trauma.
Join us for the Hope for the Journey Conference, co-hosted by Heartland Church and New Pathways for Children. Show Hope launched its Conference 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. These methods can help all children and caregivers, not just those affected by adoption or foster care. This year we are offering two options:
- A 5-week course held in Room 112 at Heartland Church from 6-8pm each Wednesday from April 14th through May 12th. Childcare will be available for this option.
- A one-day viewing on Saturday, May 15th in the Fellowship Hall at Heartland Church from 8am through 5pm. There will be a short 30min break for lunch. Unfortunately, no childcare will be available for this option.
Hope for the Journey qualifies for foster parent training credit through DCBS and has previously qualified for social work continuing education credit. Please contact us at email@example.com if you need more information about credits. This Conference is FREE to all participants!
