Post Adoption Center
The Post-Adoption Center at CCAI offers programs for adoptees and their parents year-round. Our fall calendar of events is coming soon.
The Connected Parent
Adopted children present unique parenting challenges. How do you ensure your child
is developing a secure attachment to you, the parent? What if your child is not
attaching, even several years after the adoption? How can you address the unique
needs of your adopted child? What do you do when your child has behavioral problems,
attachment problems, or other challenging difficulties?
This 8-week course addresses many of these questions through education and support.
Parents will be given information and tools to address these questions, and will
also be given the opportunity to bring up their children’s challenges to discuss
with the group, in hopes of finding solutions and common ground. In addition, while
parents are in their training class, a corresponding children’s group will meet
the children’s needs, teach them basic self-regulation strategies, and help the
children practice some of the skills their parents are learning.
This class is subject to minimum and maximum enrollment, to ensure a supportive
environment where each family can most benefit.
