Groups for Adolescents
The primary task of adolescence is identity formation and separation from their parents. This enables teens to move out into the world. This process is more challenging for teen-agers who have been adopted as they have to separate from their birth parents as well as their adoptive parents.
TAG: Teen Adoption Group for adoptees in high school
The group provides a time for teens to develop mutual support around the unique issues adolescent adoptees face. It offers an opportunity to meet other adoptees from Fairfield County and to learn about their journeys. Members will be able to use their creativity to educate people about adoption. The group provides a safe space to ask questions and share thoughts in a judgement-free place and for adoptees to feel less alone.
The group will meet one Saturday a month for 4 sessions from 10:30am to 12pm.
Dates will be determined based on school schedules.
The cost of the group is $200. (Documentation can be provided for insurance.)
