Creative interventions for children of divorce

broken heart with family holding hands for creative interventions for children of divorce

Many children are referred to therapy to assist in their adjustment to separation and divorce. They may feel overwhelmed and confused by their emotions and reluctant to talk about the divorce. Providing a safe therapeutic environment and engaging activities assists the child’s process and helps them express their thoughts and feelings.

This three-hour webinar will highlight the most current theory and research on children of divorce, and present assessment and treatment techniques to guide children through the complications of divorce. The interventions presented in this training will address the following key treatment domains:

  • Helping the child develop effective coping skills
  • Facilitating the developmentally appropriate expression of feelings
  • Clarifying divorce-related misconceptions
  • Easing the stress associated with transitioning between two homes
  • Securing the child’s disengagement from parental conflict
  • Eliminating the child’s potential for self-blame for the divorce

These interventions are applicable to individual therapy sessions (in-person and virtual), as well as children’s support groups.

Participants will have the option to purchase a copy of Liana Lowenstein’s book, Creative Interventions for Children of Divorce (2006)!
