Changing Families

Changing Families is a school-based children's group program for students who have experienced parental divorce or separation. 
 
The purposes are:
 
   * to provide a safe place to express feelings
   * to normalize feelings through sharing
   * to train children in problem solving and coping skills
   * to increase self esteem through mutual help
   * to support parents and school staff in working with Changing Families kids
   * to increase communication among children, parents, and school
 
Activities teach children of divorced parents how to help themselves and each other. By creating a supportive community, Changing Families aims to counteract the day to day impact of divorce on young children.
