8-week support group for teen adoptees
The Share Your Story, Your Way support group is primarily designed to create a safe & supportive environment for adopted teens (ages13 to17) to engage with their story alongside fellow adoptees. The group will follow the Teen Adoptee Support Group: Share Your Story, Your Way curriculum which includes personal adoption stories from C.A.S.E.'s (Center for Adoption Support and Education) book, Beneath the Mask: For Teen Adoptees.
During this 8-week group, teens will:
Explore the 7 Core Issues of Adoption
Learn better ways to respond to adoption-related questions and comments
Have an opportunity to process their personal adoption journey and share their story, their way
Hear and learn from one another in a supportive and collaborative way
We all share the reality of adoption being a life-long journey, so let’s walk the journey together. Comfortability with reading and sharing in front of the group is highly encouraged but not mandatory.
*Participants do not need this book to attend.
