Adoption Support Group

  • The Center for Connection 1021 East Walnut Street Pasadena, CA, 91106 United States (map)

Join us as we provide extra support that meets the special needs of adoptive parents/caregivers in order to help to build strong, healthy and connected families. If any of the below apply, then this group is for you:

  • Does your child have multiple appointments and special services?
  • Are you struggling to find a balance between your child and family needs?
  • Would it be helpful to receive support and a place to connect with other caregivers?
  • Are you faced with a broad range of issues relating to societal, health, emotional, family, financial and child behavioral factors?

We carefully and uniquely created this group to be a process group with psychoeducation sprinkled in throughout the 8 week series that will cover things such as: adoption core themes, life cycle of grief and special needs grief cycle, zones of regulation, maternal mental health, and attachment. 



Our next session will occur on Thursdays (March 1 to April 19, 2018), running for 8 weeks, and meeting at 6:30 pm.  All sessions will take place at The Center for Connection located at1021 E. Walnut, Pasadena, CA 91106.
