Children & Divorce: Playful tools to support child & family clients

Updated: Jun 14, 2021

When a family separates or divorces, everyone is affected, even when it is in the best interest of the adults involved. Children can benefit from having a safe space to explore difficult emotions and to develop ways to connect with their caregivers. In this video, I discuss three tools that therapists can use to support children through divorce. I also include an idea for family sessions as the health of the family is integral to the child's wellbeing.
