On Tuesday, March 5, 2013, CCAI’s Post Adoption Center held our first Post Adoption Center class, Parenting Your Adopted Child: Bringing Hope and Healing to the Hurt Child. Six families joined our first class, where parents had a chance to meet for training and group support and explore some key strategies on the topic of child attachment. Meanwhile, their children (seven in total) had a group of their own, playing together and learning about self-regulation and respect, and enjoying some sensory integration activities. We had so much fun!
This group will continue to meet for the next seven weeks, with more families joining us as time permits. We can already tell this will be a wonderful time of learning and growing for parents and children alike!
We’ll try to post some pictures for next week’s class. 🙂
