The need for the group centers around the increased number of parents and families experiencing divorce and separation, which is often accompanied by high levels of stress. In this CarePlus group, we will help reduce children’s stress level within a supportive environment, and strive to help remove them from the adult conflict.
The group is open to children in kindergarten through eighth grade,
and the skills taught are sensitive to their different developmental stages.
Over the 8-week session period, the group will assist participants in:
- Being able to cope more effectively with parental divorce and separation, as well as reduce stress levels.
- Enhancing their long-term adjustment.
- Preventing academic, behavioral, and emotional problems that may accompany family disruption.
- Coping with feelings of loss, anger, self-blame, and the permanency of divorce.
