Care Lifebooks for Teens
The teenage years are rough
enough without having to deal with the issues of adoption and foster care. For many teens, the only way they know to express
their confusion, doubt or pain is through rebellion. As a social worker, foster parent,
group home staff, or therapist you have the power to help sort out feelings in a
productive way with the "For When I'm Famous" lifebooks.
Make A Meaningful
Connection With Teens While Having Fun
These lighthearted lifebooks are an
excellent tool for anyone working with teens in care because they allow you to work
directly with teens. This simple tool opens
the lines of communication and gives teens permission to express a wide range of feelings,
to ask hard questions, to dream about the future and more.
Sound like a lot of work? Not
at all! That's because all the "work" is done while planning a
party! As teens fill in the blanks of the book, they actually plan their next
birthday celebration. Who wouldn't enjoy that?
