Identity: Who Am I?

Cost per individual £10
Share this event

Our sense of identity is made up of many parts and ‘being adopted’ is one such part for many people. As parents and carers it’s useful to spend some time thinking about what this might mean for an adopted child and their sense of self; and how best to support children to integrate this fact into an overall positive narrative about who they are.

This  ‘hands-on’ workshop will explore what identity is, how it’s formed and what we can do to shape it in positive and life-affirming ways for ourselves and our adopted children. Your stories, questions and reflections are all welcome.

We will:

  • Look at the impact of history, home and how the world views us
  • Learn practical strategies to work with emerging identity needs
  • Recognise and share the skills, knowledge and experience in the group
  • Have plenty of time for reflection and discussion

Facilitated by Anna Bianchi, a writer, trainer and facilitator. She is a former social worker who has specialised in working therapeutically with young people for many years.

Cost: £10.00 per person for non CCS families (payment is required in advance)
