CONNECT COURSE: Will be held virtually over Zoom and begins Sunday September 19, 2021 3:30-5:30pm
Empowered to Connect (ETC) Parent Training is an interactive learning experience designed specifically for adoptive and foster parents. ETC Parent training was developed by Michael and Amy Monroe and relies heavily on the Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) model developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and her colleagues at the TCU Institute of Child Development. Courses are taught by certified ETC Parent Trainers equipped to walk alongside families in the adoptive and foster journey.
Course Topics include: Building a Foundation of Connection, Examining What You Bring to the Relationship, Discovering the Heart of Connection, Focusing on the Needs of the Whole Child, Putting It All Together: Connecting While Correcting.
This nine week course is designed to equip parents with a holistic understanding of the needs and development of adopted and foster children and empower you with the tools and strategies to effectively meet those needs, build trust, and help your children heal and grow.
