Please use 15 minutes (or as much time as needed) for summing up what you worked with between the last session and this one:
• Did you succeed in doing what you planned?
• What was easy to do and what was difficult?
• What did you learn from doing what you planned?
• What can you do better next time you work between sessions?

Please remember: it is okay if you experienced problems – this is a new way of working, and it takes some exercise and experimenting before it becomes routine

Who am I?
– creating a positive identity from a divided background

Competences to be exercised
  • The skill of planning and practising open dialogues about being in foster care
  • How to use your own life experiences as a resource for exemplary narratives.
  • How to help children and youth understand their behaviour as natural reactions to loss.
  • How to make practical activities for children, where difficult separations from important persons in their lives can be resolved
