Support Group will meet on Mondays (Jan. 10, Jan. 24, Jan. 31, Feb. 7, Feb. 14, Feb. 21, Feb. 28) at 6:30 – 8:00 pm.
Registration is closed for this FREE Teen Identity Support Group, moderated by Adoption Competent Therapists Barbara Franck, LCSW, LCSW-C & Shahla Abdi, LMSW. Adolescence is a tumultuous time in one’s development. Being adopted adds another layer of complexity. NPAC is pleased to offer a seven-week group for teen adoptees in grades 8-12 who reside in Northern Virginia, whose adoption has been finalized, to focus on promoting identification with other adopted teens, providing a safe space to share feelings and thoughts about their adoption experience and supporting their exploration of identity.
Registration closes December 15, 2021 in order for clinicians to complete pre-group assessment of registrants and mail out group packets prior to the start of the group.
