DIVORCE GROUP FOR CHILDREN
Divorce Group for Children
This group meets weekly for twelve ninety-minute sessions and costs a one-time fee of $375.
We are offering this group only a few times each year, so it will be important to contact the office about getting on the list for the next cycle.
For Children of Divorced, Separated, or Never-together Parents
HELP YOUR CHILD SUCCEED IN SCHOOL—AND IN LIFE! This is a group that services children who are experiencing the divorce or separation of their parents. This group is also open to children who’s parents are already divorced or separated or were never together as a couple and are struggling to co-parent successfully.
The National Institute of Health recognizes over three decades of research and notes that “children with divorced parents continued to score significantly lower on measures of academic achievement, conduct, psychological adjustment, self-concept, and social relations”. 1
This does not mean that all children need to be in therapy. However, support outside of the support parents provide may be helpful.
Researchers looked at 56 studies on this and found that kids or adolescents treated with group therapy were better off at the end of treatment than 73% of those who were not. 2
This group will put your child or children in with peers his or her age and experience. To learn more about how this program can help you and your child, please call Live! at 505-717-7227. CLASSES BEGIN Summer 2017 and have limited enrollment. Call today to reserve your spot.
