This exceptional resource offers the adults who support these young people a sensitive, honest and practical programme. There is a good balance between affective and skills based activities and, whilst recognising the uncertainty they face, the eight sessions all provide a positive focus for the young people and their families. The programme includes: } Exploring our Feelings about Who We Are } Role-Models } Poetry and Painting } History, Legislation and my Bill of Rights } My Shield of Strength } Hopes, Fears and Dreams The resource includes copiable material for participants personal files, and posters for display.show more
