SEQUEIRA, Vania Conselheiro  and  STELLA, Claudia. Support group for adoptive parents: an experience psychosocial. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2014, vol.16, n.1, pp. 69-78. ISSN 1516-3687.

The Law of Family Living is the current law on adoption in the country. It creates an obligation of previous qualification to adopt and considers necessary to prepare adoptive parents in psychosocial and legal ways. This paper reflects, from an experience of support group to prospective adoptive parents, about the possibility of support group works as a tool to conflict prevention between parents and the child to be adopted. We can conclude, that to welcome a child, parents need understand their own filiations, inheritances and desires and the support group can be a form of awareness and preparedness of the adoptive parents for themes that permeate the filiation process.

Keywords : adoption; psychosocial support group; legal psychology; filiation; psychoanalyze.
