In this survival manual, current and former foster
teens show how they prepared not only for the
practical challenges they've faced on the road to
independence, but also the emotional ones. Worksheets
and exercises will help foster teens plan for their
future. Activity pages at the end of each chapter
help social workers, independent living instructors,
and other leaders use the stories with individuals
or in groups.
"I just got my copy of Do You Have What It Takes?
and it is phenomenal! I am ordering copies for all
of my staff and for our library. We have been
looking for curricula and now our search is over."
