Voices Unheard: A Reflective Journal for Adult Adoptees (Paperback)
Voices Unheard: A Reflective Journal for Adult Adoptees, a 52-week writing journal created by adoptee Lisa Coppola, a licensed mental health counselor, offers prompts based on core themes that arise in post-adoption therapy. It enables adoptees to better understand how their early experiences have consciously or subconsciously affected their instincts, behaviors, and emotions. The creative process can enable the writer to recognize, validate, and learn how to comfort feelings, an essential step on the path to leading a healthy and fulfilling life.
This journal includes a glossary, recommended reading, and guidelines and a script to help volunteer moderators run peer groups.
- Adult adoptees can use the journal as a guide individually or under the care of a therapist.
- Therapists can use the journal as a tool in their practice with adopted clients.
- Peer-led support group moderators can use the prompts as weekly assignments, enabling attendees to share their thoughts in a group setting.
