How to Voice Our Identities:
An empowerment and communication workshop
When negotiating our sense of self as adoptees living in Korea or our adopted countries, many of us have anxiety over meeting people, speaking our minds, and developing meaningful relationships. This workshop will be an exploration of how aspects of our adoptee experience - issues of racism, trauma, trust, abandonment - affect how we speak and communicate, in addition to the impression we make to others.
The afternoon will be about listening to each other openly and exploring straightforward and practical exercises that explore who we are as adoptees and how we can become more powerful and present in all aspects of our lives.
In this workshop, you will:
learn clear strategies for improving your communication skills with confidence and ease
discuss the idea of codeswitching and how it applies to our lives and relationships
discover the relationship and connection between our states of mind and the state of our bodies
examine how your presence affects others and how other people affect you in any given setting
explore ways of introducing yourself and describing your background that cause less anxiety and stress
have fun and be heard!
This workshop is for adoptees who would like to:
be more comfortable and confident in both social and professional settings
explore their adoptee experiences in relation to their right to speak, communicate, and foster meaningful relationships
become more powerful when speaking to others
increase their ability to be vulnerable
WHO All adoptees are encouraged to attend - from all backgrounds and those living here long term, short term, or just passing through.
