The Boomerang Bunch: A School-Based Multifamily Group Approach for Students and Their Families Recovering from Parental Separation and Divorce
Ziffer, Judith M.; Crawford, Eileen; Penney-Wietor, Joy
Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v32 n2 p154-164 Apr 2007
Because the community lacked counseling services for whole families experiencing separation and divorce, The Boomerang Bunch was conceived, designed and implemented by six school counselors to identify and therapeutically address changes impacting the participant families as they attempted to "bounce back" from separation and divorce. Building on the strengths and resilience of these families, school counselors met with students and their families at the community public school outside of school hours for 8 weeks. The rationale, group process, techniques, therapeutic activities, and outcome are outlined providing school counselors with the specifics to replicate The Boomerang Bunch in their school setting.
