Ordering Your LSSI Lifebook

“My Awesome Life” is a Lifebook written by social workers at Lutheran Social Services of Illinois (LSSI). It has several versions to fit the needs of children at various stages of their journey through foster care, adoption, as well as children making sense of loss, trauma or change who are not involved in the foster care system.

“Putting the Pieces Together: Lifebook Work with Children” is LSSI’s training curriculum designed to help agencies, therapists, social workers, child welfare professionals, as well as foster and adoptive parents, use Lifebooks with children.
