Cape Town Adoption Support


Adoptive parents and those either considering adoption or who are in the process of adopting a child are welcome to join Cape Town Adoption Support, a support group facilitated by clinical psychologist and adoptive parent, Jean Luyt. 

The group offers a safe platform for tackling difficult topics you’ve been met with as an adoptive parent, a community of people who share your experience, along with the professional support of experienced psychologists. 

In addition to specific topics relevant to the group, you can expect to learn about: 

  • Enhancing attachment 
  • Talking to your child about adoption
  • Managing discipline in constructive ways
  • Dealing with (inappropriate) questions from family, friends and strangers
  • Transracial adoption
  • Answering your child’s questions in age appropriate ways
  • Preparing yourself and your chid if they want to meet their biological parents
