Purvis, PhD, is the director of the Institute of Child Development at Texas Christian University. Dr. Purvis, co-author of, The Connected Child, will present ways to create emotionally, physically, and spiritually safe places for our children, on Wednesday, October 1, 2008.

Dr. Purvis has done extensive research and offers training on the human interactions for adults working with children. She has worked with judges, lawyers, case workers, CPS workers, teachers, therapists and parents. Her work teaches people "how to create an optimal healing environment and practical tools for redirecting behavior that will help their child develop to his or her fullest potential" (from an interview in The TCU Magazine).
This event is provided for professionals working with children -- from those who interact with children occasionally to those who work with children on a day-to-day basis. The workshop offered by Dr. Purvis will help us be more effective as caring adults and will help us create safer environments for our children.
Dr. Purvis is the co-author with Dr. David Cross of The Connected Child: Bringing Hope and Healing to your Adoptive Family (McGraw Hill Press). The book was a best-seller in the adoption books category on the New York Times Bestsellers list.
