7-8:15 p.m. CT on Wednesdays from Oct. 9-Nov. 13, 2024 (six weeks)

This group, for adult adoptees over the age of 21, will use the concepts from the book Beneath the Mask, by Debbie Riley, LCMFT, with John Meeks, MD. Even though the book was written about teens and young adults, we believe the six key areas of vulnerability they identify about the adoption experience are significant regardless of an adopted person’s age.

We will address the disguises adopted people hide behind, why the struggle to form one’s identity is more complex for adopted people and look at the six “stuck points” or emotional challenges people face as they integrate the adoption experience into who they are. Over six sessions, we will discuss the questions, concerns and challenges of each stuck point, which are Reason for Adoption, Identity, Difference, Mission or Difficult Information, Loyalty and Permanence.
