This Programme consists of five sessions ( 3 for the children and 2 for the parents) where we focus on the children and their experience of the divorce. The sessions will work with the children and parents separately to address the issues that are specific to children.
The programme ensures all parents with children under 18 undergoing divorce will be exposed to materials and discussions that will sensitize them to their children’s difficulties and hopefully teach them the skills to minimize their children’s stress in these circumstances.
Children often feel caught in an emotional roller coaster and react with negative behaviors. The programme helps children use skills to build better resilience to the negative emotions.
The content focuses primarily on the children as they are more vulnerable and less able to fend for themselves.
It focuses on the most common ways parents involve their children in their conflict (usually unknowingly).
The activities sensitize the parents on their children’s perspectives on this conflict, followed by instructions on methods to reduce their children’s exposure to this conflict.
Number of sessions: Children (3 two hour sessions), Adults (2 two hour sessions)
