You are adoptive parents…
“One is not born a parent; one grows to become a parent”
What support might you need ?
1. Support for new families
The “Maison de l’Adoption” (Adoption Support Centre) offers courses and workshops for parents and their adopted child(ren). These psychological and physical exercises are designed to support and deepen the family bond and encourage healthy child development. Play, have fun, and grow together.
Psychological and physical workshop “Hopplabumz” :
Following the example set by our colleagues Louise Authier and Armande Beaulieu, the “Maison de l’Adoption” in Luxembourg offers psychotherapy workshops for adoptive families. This series of eight workshops, each two hours in length, is especially designed for families with young adopted children.
These workshops aim to help create, sustain, and deepen a strong family bond and encourage healthy child development. Each session is divided into two smaller sections. The first is dedicated to the parents, designed to develop receptiveness and responsiveness to the child’s specific needs. The second focuses on interaction between parent and child through games and various specially adapted activities.
If your child is younger than 7 and has been adopted in the past 4 months, we suggest that you attend the psycho-physical workshop “Hopplabunz”.
It takes place on Saturdays from 9:30-11:30am.
… … … (please ask the secretary for workshop dates upon arrival)
There is a participation fee of €360 per family for the eight sessions.
