Divorce affects thousands of children each year, and each and every one of them will benefit from the caring, friendly activities in this book. While children may sometimes not show apparent signs of the stress of a divorce, the strain it places on them is very real and, left undealt with, can develop into serious problems in the years to come.
Written by an experienced counselor, The Divorce Workbook for Children offers you simple and engaging activities that can help you help kids address and cope with issues related to parental divorce. The goal of these activities is to help kids feel 'out of the middle' of the parental conflict and learn to be more resilient and self-reliant.
The forty sensitively written activities in this book help kids adapt to family changes, deal with stress, keep from getting involved in parental arguments, cope with their feelings when a parent begins to date again, and more.
For ages 6-12.
