Michael Van Dam is offering a ten-week group course for school-aged children designed to help children cope with and adjust to the impact of divorce. Having lost control of important areas of their lives, children of divorce often become anxious and distrustful. They can avoid closeness as a means of creating safety for themselves. The group setting is particularly valuable in deterring children from withdrawing socially and from suppressing anxiety and shame driven thoughts and feelings. The children will find comfort in learning that "they aren't the only one". A new normal will be established that will help the children proceed with reassurance, confidence, and hope.
Date: January 10 - March 13
Time: Tuesdays, 4:30 - 5:30 pm.
