Family Therapy

“What makes a family is neither the absence of tragedy nor the ability to hide from misfortune, but the courage to overcome it and, from that broken past, write a new beginning.”

family therapy at BPAR

At Boston Post Adoption Resources, we bring families together to work on the challenges they face to facilitate change, growth, and understanding for all members. We are culturally competent and are sensitive to the dynamics and experiences of transracial adoptions both domestically and internationally.

We work with families formed through:

  • Adoption (domestic, international, kinship, trans-racial, gay or lesbian, single parent)
  • Divorce
  • Fostering
  • Guardianship
  • Reproductive Technologies
  • Other complex blended family situations

We can help your family cope with:

  • Limit setting
  • Communication
  • Managing triggers and reactions
  • Navigating birth family searches and relationships
  • Sibling relationships
  • Parent-child relationships
  • Adolescent and child development
  • Developmental stages of adoption
  • How to talk to your kids about their adoption
  • How to help your kids talk about their adoption

“We turned to BPAR because my daughter and I
were trying to get closer to each other and it was hard.
We couldn’t really connect as much as we wanted,
or cuddle or really understand each other.
Our therapy has helped us do that and brought our family together.”

“I thought maybe we should get some supports in place
for when that adolescent time comes, and I was SO glad we did.”

“To think about the things, the imagination an adopted kid might have,
has made me feel a lot better.”
