Description

Separation and divorce present multiple challenges for children and parents as they reorganize their family structure. Current research identifies risk and protective factors associated with childrenís psychosocial and academic adjustment and provides important and specific guidance for practitioners working with these families.

This seminar will highlight relevant divorce research and discuss the implications that emerge for effective clinical practice. Therapeutic and educational interventions designed to focus parents on their childrenís needs, the impact of high conflict and ineffective parenting, and co-parenting models and communication styles will be emphasized.

Dr. Kelly will link research and practice throughout and use group exercises to focus on typical divorce dilemmas. Relevant articles and bibliography will be provided.
