The Children & Change Group is a 6-8 session group for children aged 5-12 years (children will be grouped into age appropriate sessions) who have experienced their parents’ separation or divorce. Topics include feelings, loss and change, loyalty and “being in the middle”, hopes and wishes, and self-esteem. Children experience separation in different ways than adults and may be reacting with anger, profound sadness, anxiety, guilt or confusion. They may be showing signs of sleep problems, regression, school difficulties, over achievement, aggression, aligning with one parent over the other. Through this fun, interactive process, kids get a chance to use art, games, discussion, and other activities to explore the changes in their lives.
