Hence, divorcing parents frequently ask, “What should we say to our children? How do we help our children cope with the divorce?” Parents wonder if there any buffers to minimize the potentially debilitating effects of divorce on children.
Though children are unique, as are family situations, there are some solid guidelines and interventions to facilitate children’s adaptation to divorce. We offer comprehensive parenting counseling and divorce counseling services for families considering, undergoing, or coping with a divorce that focus on the following areas:
Children are resilient, and the research suggests that most children fare well after a divorce – if the divorce is done well and the children are protected during and after. Our goal is to facilitate the divorce in ways that best protect you and your children, so that you are empowered as parents to be the best parents you can be, and that your children continue to thrive. Aspiring Family therapists provide an integrated, evidence-based, bio-psycho-social approach to effectively address the significant stressors of divorce. Our treatment approach is team based so that you or your child can see specialists to minimize the presenting symptoms and to address the underlying environmental stressors.
