The Connecting Link

In The Connecting Link: What Parents Need to Bring Healing to Their Children, delivered at the 2009 Tapestry Adoption & Foster Care Conference, Dr. Purvis provides parents with a better understanding of why children from hard places use distancing strategies, and how they can help their children replace those strategies by giving them voice, empowering them to make choices and helping them rediscover their inherent preciousness. Dr. Purvis also challenges parents to better understand what they bring to the relationship, and to look at their own past hurts and loss with honesty and forgiveness.
