For Kids’ Sake – Nurturing Children Through the Transition of Divorce
Seminar Leader: Corinna Collins, MA
Divorce is a painful and confusing experience for all children. Even the most caring parents will find it difficult to focus on their children’s needs during such a traumatic time. Research indicates that the manner in which parents handle divorce can have a direct impact on children’s adjustment and that it is possible for parents to reduce some of the pain and confusion through good parenting skills.
For Kids’ Sake seminars focus on issues such as understanding the effects divorce can have on children, how to avoid placing children in the middle of parenting issues, and maintaining a meaningful and loving relationship with their children. It can also help parents get in touch with their children’s needs, providing the knowledge and skills to safely nurture their children through this process.
This four-hour seminar is an interactive group educational model led by skilled facilitators. It does not address personal or legal issues nor is it a counseling experience. The overwhelming majority of parents who have participated in this type of seminar feel that it is a very supportive and worthwhile experience.
