Changing Steps Family Counselling's Groups

Adoptive Families

We will review the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (the work of Dr. Bruce Perry), attachment theories and create a community of support for parents who are sometimes parenting children who endeavor to keep everyone at bay. This is an online group and the group link is shared the day of group. Parents require a camera, and a quiet space. The fee displayed is for the participation of one or both parents.
