“…Our study used action research (Tripp, 2005;Paulon, 2005) and adopted a focus group intervention model (Hassen, 2002;Gondim, Feitosa, & Chaves, 2007). The project was inspired by the work of Fitzhardinge (2008), in which the author asked a group of teenagers to make a film about their own lives focusing on the experience of being adopted. The objective of the focus groups, as used by Fitzhardinge, was to provoke participants to reflect on their own condition and help them develop strategies to deal with the difficulties imposed by the adversities of the socio-cultural environment.…”

“…Investigating the narrative organization of the resilient self in young people in socially vulnerable situations of abandonment and adoption, Fitzhardinge (2008) identified the organization of coherent narratives as a fundamental element in the construction of a resilient narrative self. Young people tended to construct life stories focused on the theme of attachment and interpersonal relationships, so that the presence of coherent narratives seemed to indicate they were managing to deal with traumatic and disruptive elements present in the situation of abandonment through a re-signification of adverse experiences.…”
