Switch for blogWe at Together for Adoption have never been more excited about one of our pre-conference workshops. In light of last year’s conference theme (Urgency & Complexity: Biblical & Ethical Approaches to the Orphan Crisis), this year’s pre-conference workshop could not be more relevant and is the perfect compliment to our conference theme this year: Simple. Solutions are Closer than You Think.

Whatever the major change challenge you need to tackle as a pre-adoptive or adoptive parent, a foster child advocate, foster parent, advocate of family reunification, adult adoptee, or a non-profit or church ministry that works in the orphan care/adoption worldyou will receive tools in this 3 1/2 hour workshop to spark and achieve breakthrough change.

Our workshop trainer is Susan Heath Hays (sister of Chip and Dan Heath, authors of New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling books Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die and Switch: How To Change When Change is Hard). Susan is the Heath brothers’ #1 Switch trainer. She’s also a member of Brandon and Jen Hatmaker’s church in Austin, Texas (Brandon is one of our speakers this year).

“In a compelling, story-driven narrative, the Heaths bring together decades of counterintuitive research in psychology, sociology, and other fields to shed new light on how we can effect transformative change. Switch shows that successful changes follow a pattern, a pattern you can use to make the changes that matter to you, whether your interest is in changing the world or changing your waistline” (from the publisher of Switch). Solutions to challenges in orphan care, foster care, and adoption are closer than you think.
