Great new resource for families!
Many of you have been helped by Dr. Karyn Purvis' book, The Connected Child. Perhaps you were able to attend one of her conferences that Caroline's Promise helped to bring to the Triad. We are excited about her latest resource, "Created to Connect: A Christian's Guide to The Connected Child." Dr. Purvis and Michael & Amy Monroe developed this study guide to help illuminate the biblical principles that serve as the foundation for the philosophy and interventions detailed in The Connected Child. You can download a pdf file of the entire study guide or a chapter by chapter version.
We highly recommend this resource as well as their blog and online resource library: http://empoweredtoconnect.org/blog/
You'll find great articles on topics such as adoption preparation, adhd, brain chemistry and discipline.
An example of one of the resources is a link to a webinar where Dr. Purvis addressed important questions and issues such as: who is a child from hard places; how to encourage the development of trust and secure attachment; effective ways to correct behavior; how to handle transitions; and many more. http://empoweredtoconnect.org/parenting-children-from-haiti-and-other-hard-places/
We hope you'll find these resources helpful and share them with your friends!
