It can be hard to be yourself and it can be even harder to like who you are. The first step in becoming a successful individual is understanding and accepting yourself. This session includes information, handouts, and activities on self-awareness, self-acceptance, and self-advocacy.
THE BREAD AND BUTTER OF THIS SECTION:
This section of the toolkit is meant to facilitate self-acceptance and understanding, with the goal of ultimately developing self-acceptance skills. In order for youth to become successful adults, they must have self-advocacy skills. It can be used as a whole or as individual activities. Ideally the Self- Acceptance, Awareness, and Advocacy PowerPoint should be used prior to the other activities.
