Children of Divorce/Separation support groups are being offered at Barton Academy of Excellence Elementary School for students 1st through 6th grade. The group is open to children who have recently experienced parental separation or divorce. The groups usually consist of three to seven children who have had similar feelings and experiences.
We will cover issues such as changes in the family that occur as a result of divorce or separation such as, living in two houses, the grieving process, legal issues, step parenting, and so on. There will be a discussion and activities in each session. All the artwork that the children have done will be saved and sent home after the last session. Your child may be interested in sharing this with you.
The group will meet once a week during the regular school day for approximately 35 minutes. I have also included a confidential questionnaire. It is not necessary to fill it out, but if your son or daughter will be joining the group, then the information asked for helps me to understand the issues that your child is dealing with. I will be the only person to view the confidential responses. The “Tips for Parents” handout is for you to keep. It includes recommendations that hopefully will be helpful to you.
We are very happy to offer this service to your child and you are encouraged to share any information, which would assist me in helping your child be successful and happy. If you have any questions regarding the group, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to working with your child and working with him/her through this difficult life experience.
