Adoption Stories: A 10-week drama therapy and expressive arts group for adult adoptees. Adopted people often have complex feelings, identities and family relationships that are difficult to navigate.

Join us for 10 weeks of exploration and healing with prominent drama therapy and expressive arts facilitators. We will uncover and transform our stories into life affirming narratives through drama therapy, voice work, Playback Theatre, drawing, movement, and journaling. No previous arts experience necessary. Shy people are welcome! Facilitated by Armand Volkas, MFT, RDT/BCT and Amber Field, Adoptee & Expressive Arts Facilitator.
