Summer Workshop for Teens Age 13-15: “Creating Roots” Module 4

August 21, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm


Module 4:  Ritual and Loss

Often in life loss is surrounded by ritual. When someone dies there is a funeral. When someone moves there is a “Bon Voyage” party. For the adoptee, the loss of a primary giver is not mourned or ritualized. This module is an opportunity for participants to help one another create a ceremony for processing this early loss and trauma. Taking into account what each individual feels is important for their ceremony, we will create an experience where individuals can speak and share about their lost. The session will be team based and will end in a celebration of our collective identity as a group and as individuals who have adoption as part of their story.

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

Note: This is Module 4 of 4 in the "Creating Roots" series for adoptees age 13-15 offered by BPAR this summer. Group leader Caitlin Woodstock will lead the workshops, each lasting 3 hours from 11am-2pm on Tuesdays: July 17, July 31, August 7 and August 21. Participants my attend any or all of the workshops.
