Adoptive Parent Support Group for parents of children with Attachment issues, PTSD, mood disorders and high anxiety and other issues only please

Does your child have violent tantrums, explosive behavior, and/or a constant need for control? Do you worry that any small change may in schedule may set off an violent outburst? Are there times of the week or times of the year (holidays!) that are particularly challenging for you and your family?

This group is for adoptive parents who are dealing with severe behavior issues with their adopted children. Parents in this group struggle with helping their children work through issues of Attachment, PTSD, mood disorders and high anxiety. This group is meant to be a safe place for parents to learn about different resources for their children and their families, but more importantly to have a confidential place to talk about the challenges of dealing with children with these issues.

We will be working with a counselor from the Adoption Preservation Program through Metropolitan Family Services to identify topics through the year to assist parents in shoring up support for themselves and their family.
