Summer Workshop for Teens Age 13-15: “Creating Roots” Module 3

August 7, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm


Module 3:  Phone and Fantasy

After participating in icebreaker games and mindfulness exercises, participants will engage in a discussion about the phenomenon of fantasy within the adoptee. Normalizing the romanticization or demonization of personal stories will be explored. Participants will then engage in a discussion about social media, cell phone use, and how, in a world with increasing exposure due to technological advancement, social media can be safely and responsibly used. The idea of creating a photo narrative about individuals’ fantasies pertaining to adoption will be introduced. Participants will explore the neighborhood as a group and be permitted to take photos of themselves and the surrounding area which they feel pertain to their story. Photos will be uploaded and printed and participants will create a photo collage of their own
images which portrays their particular fantasy about adoption.

Use this form to express interest for your teen. Once we receive your form, we will contact you.
