Two new groups for adopted youth

Adolescence is a tough time for many youths. The complexity of adoption-related issues can magnify this difficulty. That is why Right Turn now offers groups specifically for youth during these difficult years.

Our 8-week group for youth age 14-18 is kicking off in Lincoln on September 17th. Our 6-week group for youth age 10-13 will launch on October 1st. Space is limited so be sure to register early.

Untangling Adoption and Adolescence - Kearney

Monday, July 23, 2018
6:00 pm8:00 pm
Kearney Public Library South Platte Room 2020 1st Ave, Kearney, NE 68847

with Christine Bowlby, LMHP, RPT

Adolescence is a critical age in which young people are trying to figure out who they are and where their life is headed. Adopted adolescents face these normal challenges with an added layer of complexity. The grief and loss inherent in adoption becomes clearly visible as the teenage brain grows and develops. This new understanding leads to new questions at a time when all adolescents are developing an identity. This training is geared at helping parents understand how normal adolescent development and adoption issues fit together and play out for adopted teens and their families. Participants will learn about the ‘Six Stuck Spots’ identified by the Center for Adoption Support and Education (C.A.S.E.) that are common for adopted teens and provide ideas as to how adoptive parents can support their adopted teens.
