Between The Lines is a group for girls who joined their families through adoption or foster care, and are now age 10 to 12-years old.
This is a 6 week therapy group for girls who are interested in exploring issues related to adoption and identity through making art. Through structured group art exercises, therapeutic activities and open group discussion time we will engage in a dialogue about adoption-related issues; we will be working to encourage girls to explore their own life story and their experiences related to adoption, as well as to hear about and validate other girls’ experiences. Thoughts and feelings about culture, identity, birth family, prying peers and other issues may be explored.
Groups are formed as families call to express interest. We need at least 4 girls to form a group. Location for groups may be the Queen Anne office or the West Seattle office. Cost is $45 per session and payments must be made for the full 6 sessions prior to start of group. No insurance billing, however a receipt of payment will be provided upon request.
