We are very sorry to have to postpone this workshop due to the current government restrictions. We will reschedule as soon as possible.
Teenage years can be a challenging time for young people and for their parents, and they even more so for adopted young people. The job of the teenager is to work towards their own identity- and that can be hard to do when you don’t know too much about your beginnings.
Many parents are concerned that their young teens find it hard to express themselves about what adoption means to them. It can be very helpful for young people to understand that others can have the same feelings as they do and this workshop can be a springboard for more discussion with parents.
The purpose of this workshop is to bring young teens together in a safe, fun and supportive setting to look at how adoption fits in to all the other parts of themselves. Activities will be used to keep the participants relaxed and engaged.
We will suggest that parents take part in some of the workshop with refreshments available while the teens work as a group. Parents will be most welcome to contact us both before and afterwards to discuss their son/daughters participation. Handouts will be provided.
Workshop limited to 8 teenagers. If sold out, please contact [email protected]
