Local authorities are developing groups for adopted young people as a means of them reflecting on their experiences and contributing to further services. Simon Kerr-Edwards reports on the setting up and running of such a group. He considers the literature on trauma, teenagers
and group work and recounts how the group originated and evolved. The model for the group and the issues that have arisen from it are discussed. There is further consideration of what has been learnt from the process and how the group may develop in the future.
