When attempts at parenting with empathy, compassion, and cultivating joy are met with withdrawal, avoidance, or defensiveness, parents may experience a stress response called blocked care that creates disconnection in the parent-child relationship. This support group will be a space for adoptive parents to share with one another and receive support around the challenges of parenting through disconnection, as well as to learn tools for supporting healthy connection.

Parents of adopted children of all ages are welcome to join this virtual group.

This one-hour virtual group will be time-limited to the following session dates:
April 12 at 6 p.m.
April 19 at 6 p.m.
May 3 at 6 p.m.
May 17 at 6 p.m.
June 7 at 6 p.m.
June 21 at 6 p.m.

Cost is $30 per parent, per session.

Sign up here. Note that BPAR will complete a brief phone intake prior to the group.
