Group Therapy

“The loss inherent in adoption is unlike other losses we have come to expect in a lifetime, such as death or divorce. Adoption loss is more pervasive, less socially recognized, and more profound.”

Group Therapy at BPAR

At Boston Post Adoption Resources, we organize groups for all ages, each offering support and unity in an accepting environment. We will provide you with resources and if interested, connect you with others who have been through similar experiences.

If you’d like to learn more about the advantages of support groups, we’ve written a number of blogs to give you a sense of what to expect:
