W.I.S.E. Up! Workshops

W.I.S.E. Up! Workshops
Holt-Sunny Ridge is pleased to offer two W.I.S.E. Up! Workshops tailored to your child's age group. W.I.S.E. Up is a unique and interactive workshop developed by the Center for Adoption Support and Education (C.A.S.E.).
Who should attend?
This Workshop is open to children grades 1-3, ages 6, 7, & 8, and children grades 4-6, ages 9, 10, & 11. The Workshop offers practical tools for adoptive parents and adopted children (adopted both internationally and domestically) to guide them in making choices on how to respond to uncomfortable or personal questions about their adoption. Each workshop also includes a parent workshop and one W.I.S.E. Up! Powerbook.
What Does The Workshop Look Like?
The W.I.S.E. Up! Workshop is a two-hour workshop designed to empower children and adults to deal with personal questions and comments related to adoption.
Children and adults break up into separate groups for the Workshop. Through a series of activities, discussions, and role playing, children learn the "W.I.S.E. Up" way to answer personal questions about adoption.

During this time, adults attend their own interactive presentation-designed to equip parents with strategies and techniques which best support our adoptive children as they encounter personal questions related to adoption.
The W.I.S.E. Up! Workshop concludes with time for questions and answers, followed by time where children gather with their parent(s) for parent/child discussion on Workshop skills learned.
