Published: March 2015
Created by foster alumni, this book explains to foster adolescents how they can recognize their trauma, own it, and control it (R.O.C.). The text uses a story of a fosterling who overcame darkness to address: types of fosterlings, negative labeling, the power of a can-do attitude, weapons of darkness that fosterlings should avoid, and tools fosterlings can use to overcome darkness. The book closes with descriptions of adults who have overcome childhood trauma.
