A New Resource in Lifebook Therapy for Social Workers, Adoptive and Foster Families


Adoption World Specialties introduces a new adoption and foster care lifebook, “My Growing World.” A lifebook captures the needed facts about birth parents, health history and provides a therapeutic grounding for foster and adoptive children.

Hiawatha, IA, November 09, 2009 --(PR.com)-- For sixteen years, Adoption World Specialties has been a trusted resource for adoption life publications. A lifebook captures the needed facts about birth parents, health history, etc. and it also provides a therapeutic grounding for foster and adoptive children. The newest of these lifebooks for adoption and foster care is "My Growing World."

Social workers have been searching for a life book that engages children and gets them to share their feelings. The use of life books can be one of the most important data gathering and therapeutic tools available to social workers. Foster and adoptive parents can use life books to help kids work through problems and promote attachment.

"My Growing World" is full of whimsical artwork and fun-loving characters created by Lucy Cook Taylor. The images capture a child’s interest and the thought-provoking stories and questions by Kat Carroll provide the bibliotherapy foster families can use to connect with the children.

This new, full color book targets ages 5 to 10. It starts with a chapter entitled, “I’m the Star,” which concentrates on the child’s emotional well-being. Later chapters delve into family history and pertinent data like health history. Sprinkled throughout the book are fun activities like mazes and coloring pages that keep the child’s interest.

"My Growing World" is a tool created for both professionals and individuals who want an up-to-date lifebook that today’s kids can relate to. Imaginative, entertaining, thought provoking and therapeutic all in one book.
