2-3 hour workshop for adopted children aged 8 - 11 with a parent. Workshop will give children the opportunity to consider how they might confidently answer questions they might be asked about adoption or ethnicity outside the home.
This workshop assists children in appreciating all they know about adoption and to explore gently some feelings they might have. They are supported to think about the words they might use in talking about being adopted.
We also look at the child and parent together - at ways they are like each other and characteristics the child might have inherited from their birth parent. The purpose of this is to assist the child in openly thinking about all the different aspects of themselves and strengthening their self esteem.
Workshop facilitated by Celine Keogh and Josie Sangster.
