The purpose of this workshop is to bring young teens together in a safe fun and supportive session to look at how adoption fits in to all the other parts of themselves. Art and play will be used to keep participants relaxed and engaged.
We will be aiming to:
Boost self esteem by understanding more about adoption
Explore some interesting facts about the teenagers birth country
Give opportunities to name some common feelings that many young people might have about adoption
Look at some questions they might have about themselves
Give ideas for managing questions others might ask the young person about adoption
Assist with identity building by mapping out their "parts"
Their interests, talents and help them explore which of these might have come from birth family and which from their forever family
