Developing your own Flavor - Self Awareness, Acceptance and Advocacy

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.
