What aspect of Spanish possessives do you feel you need help with? You need to expand your question somewhat before anyone can help you.

There are many different forms of possession, please explain which ones you need help with and where. Also, sentences of problem targets would be useful.

Possesives are almost identical to English possesives, with 1 important difference: they agree with the owned thing in number (and gender if they work like an adjective). So, "my house" is "mi casa" and "my houses" is "mis casas", "the house is mine" is "la casa es mía" and "the dogs are mine" is "los perros son míos".
