Keeping connections can be difficult for children and youth who experience many transitions in their lives. Foster and adoptive parents play an important role in helping maintain connections. Life books provide children and youth in care and youth who have been adopted with personal connections to their past.
A life book is much more than a scrapbook or a baby book. It is a personal account of a child’s life kept and maintained to help fill in the holes from his or her past. Foster and adoptive parents play an important role in providing support in the creation of life books, as well as using the life book as a healing tool. Creating a life book may feel like an overwhelming task because of a lack of information or personal items to include. Come find out more about inventive ways to create life books and how to overcome hurdles that may come up in the process.
In this training we will also discuss other tools and invite you to share what has worked for you in keeping connections for kids.
Please Note: This training will be discussion-based, not a hands-on creation of life books.
