Support Group for Children of Divorce: A Family Life Enrichment Group Model.
Moore, Nancy E.; Sumner, Margaret G.
This paper presents a group work model for social workers, guidance counselors, psychologists, nurses, and teachers, to use with children who are experiencing the separation or divorce of their parents. The model is the basis of a 1-day treaining and consultation workshop for the Children of Divorce program offered by the Family Life Enrichment program of the Training and Consultation Institute, Hartford, Connecticut. Background information on the program is provided along with a brief description focusing on the program's philosophy and setting. The theoretical model for the program is presented with suggestions for starting a group within the school setting; these include recruitment, screening, and scheduling considerations. The content of the group sessions is briefly described with examples of possible presentation techniques. Adaptations of the model for use with different age levels are also presented. (KGB)
