Adopting or fostering a child is a wonderful decision for many families. Bringing a child into your life is a time of joy. That doesn’t mean it’s always easy, or that you won’t encounter challenges. You may be concerned with your child’s development, behavior and/or his or her emotional wellbeing. At Fraser, we understand these concerns. We bring an adoption-centered therapeutic perspective to our work. Our therapists help foster parents, birth parents, adoptive parents, kinship caregivers, siblings and other family members navigate a variety of challenges.
Fraser therapists can help families dealing with issues of trauma, attachment development, grief and loss, and separation. Your child may also be struggling with his or her identity, race, ethnicity or open adoption relationships.
Many families come to our program after trying multiple other therapies and find success at Fraser. Our staff have Permanency and Adoption Competency Certificates from the University of Minnesota and have participated in the Training in Adoption Competency (TAC) program. They can handle the unique challenges faced by foster and adoptive families.
