    Friends Like Us- Peer Support Group
       
    Welcome back to the 7th year for our group!  Friends Like Us is a group for Elementary school-aged kids that gathers monthly for a peer support group, moderated by an adult adoptee therapist, Elana Schuster.  The arrangements will follow the same essential framework as previous years.  

    The meetings will be the Second Tuesday of the month.  It will begin in Sept 2018 and end in April 2019.  

     
    "The “Friends Like Me” group will be a safe space for children to build friendships and explore their identity. This group will focus on various adoption themes, including diversity, adoptive families and birth families. While adoption will be the common thread throughout the group, we will also address self-esteem and school/peer issues.

    Please note that discussions related to your child’s adoption story and/or birth family will undoubtedly arise. These discussions will be facilitated in a developmentally appropriately manner and children will be empowered to choose what information they would like to share or keep to themselves."
    -Elana Schuster
     
    At the first parent session we will plan out the parent portion for the year.  Please note that we cannot guarantee a refund; should you register, pay and then need to cancel, we will try to fill your spot, but cannot guarantee a refund.

    Important to note is the parking; the lot is behind the building.  The parking lot entrance is directly to the west of the building from University (it comes up quick!).  The building Is secured, so the first night we can gather as a group and then be buzzed in. 

    If you have further questions, please contact Kim Carlson at kcarlson11@comcast.net.
