  • Creative Interventions for Children of Divorce

175 pages
ISBN: 9780968519936

An innovative collection of therapeutic games, art techniques, and stories to help children of divorce express feelings, deal with loyalty binds, disengage from parental conflict, address anger and self-blame, and learn coping strategies. Includes:

  • a theoretical overview for practitioners
  • a sample treatment plan
  • a reproducible handout to give parents
  • a ten-week curriculum that can be used in therapy or support groups.

Many children are referred for therapy to help them adjust to divorce. They typically feel vulnerable and overwhelmed by conflicting emotions. They may feel anxious about the therapeutic process and be reluctant to talk directly about the divorce. Activities that are creative and play-based can engage children and help them to safely express their thoughts and feelings. The purpose of this book is to provide mental health professionals who work with children of divorce with creative interventions to engage, assess, and treat them. A range of innovative activities are presented, including therapeutic games, art, puppets, role-plays, and stories.

A much needed resource for counsellors, therapists, and group facilitators.

Includes reproducible worksheets, sample forms, Handouts and a Questionnaire for Caregivers
