Group Name: Adoption Council of Ontario – Parent Support Group
Description: The Adoption Council of Ontario is a not-for-profit providing outreach, support and education to all adoptees, adoptive parents, potential adoptive parents, birth families, and adoption professionals in Ontario. We deal with public adoption, private adoption, international adoption and relative adoption. Since 1987, we have been working towards a provincial community where all children have families forever.
ACO is offering a therapeutic group for Adoptive parents following the model developed by Circle for Children Foundation: Changing the Script – Relationship is the Key. Participants who best benefit from this group are those adoptive parents who are presented with meeting the challenging needs of their adopted children on a daily basis. Many adoptive families struggle in parenting their child through the lens of trauma and loss. Challenging behaviours can interfere with the parent child relationship and threaten the foundation of permanence on which adoption is based.
