MIRANDA, Paulo Ricardo de Araújo; FIOROTT, Juliana Gomes; GIACOMOZZI, Andréia Isabel  and  BOUSFIELD, Andréa Barbará da Silva. Strategies for psychological follow-up on adoptive parentality: notes about group experiences. Nova perspect. sist. [online]. 2020, vol.29, n.67, pp. 85-97. ISSN 0104-7841.

This article aims to analyze the importance of group spaces in psychological counseling, both for applicants for adoption and for mothers and fathers after adoption. Altogether, there were three groups that met six times each, during 2019. The groups were free of cost, closed, fortnightly and took place in the evening in a psychological service of a public university in the country. As a method of analyzing group intervention, questionnaires were applied before and after the groups were conducted. The completed questionnaires were tabulated and categorized for qualitative and descriptive data analysis. The main results point to the importance of group spaces as useful places for elaborating the motivations and anxieties that characterize the adoption process. There is a sign of the need to build public policies aimed at adoptive parenting, which promote group follow-ups, both to applicants, as well as to mothers and fathers by adoption.
