This book is part of the CORY series to help children cope with challenging issues. This version presents engaging activities to help very young clients cope with divorce. Cory, the central character in the story, helps children gradually confront and process their feelings and reactions related to the divorce.

Therapeutic games, art, and other playful activities are incorporated to lower the threat level of therapy and engage children in treatment. Questions and re-enforcers are woven throughout the story to captivate and sustain the child’s interest in the story, and to evaluate and encourage the child’s integration of the material.

Includes a reproducible story, activities, and detailed parent handouts.

"This volume is a great contribution to the library of therapists who work with very young children of divorce. It provides imaginative, engaging activities for children and includes parents on the therapeutic path with specific tips and handouts. Inventive and unique!"
- Dr. Helen Radovanovic, C. Psych. Registered Psychologist in Private Practice

"This manual offers creative, play-based techniques for working with young children coping with divorce. I have used many of the interventions myself and have found them to be exciting and illuminating for these young children."
- Laurie Stein, LLB, MSW, RSW Connections Child and Family Counselling

"The playful and engaging activities for children and the handouts for parents make this book a valuable resource for clinicians working with young children impacted by divorce. I will use this book again and again."
