Adopted Teen Group- Lincoln
This is a group for adopted youth who are 15-18 years old and meets every Monday from September 17, 2018 through November 5, 2018.
This group is designed to provide the opportunity for youth to share, explore and gain insight into the challenges that may arise within the circle of adoption.
Building identity has a lot to do with where you came from, who you look like, and how you got to be where you are right now. Piecing together these parts of you that make you who you are is an important part of teen life. Whether you want to meet others in similar situations or get to know yourself better, this is the place for you.
The goal of this group is to help youth identify and process emotions; normalize past experiences and create a harmonious balance of one’s self and their environment.
All youth being considered for the group must attend a pre-assessment interview that will include at least one of their parents. The purpose of this assessment meeting is to explain the goals and purpose of the group and review the group outline. At this time we will discuss what the family hopes to take out of the group. We will also prepare the entire family of the intensity of emotion that may arise after attending this group.
