Upcoming Workshops + Events
Have you ever wished you had a place to talk about the unique joys and challenges of raising your adopted child(ren)?  Are you interested in widening your network of social support to join a community of adoptive families? Parents Place is excited to offer the Adoptive Parents Support Group, where you will meet fellow adoptive parents and explore together how adoption-related challenges may be impacting your family. The group will be professionally-facilitated with opportunities for education, support, guidance, and solutions.   Each month will highlight a specified topic—including talking about birth parents, trauma-informed parenting, and signs of grief and loss.      Wine and dessert will be provided. Facilitator, Ellie Pelc, Psy.D, is a licensed psychologist specializing in adoption-related concerns, attachment problems, anxiety, ADHD, and challenging behaviors. Please mark your calendars as this will be a recurring group, every second Thursday of the month.  For more information, contact Stephanie Lay at (415) 359-2498 or StephanieL@jfcs.org.
