Teaching Kids Skills to Cope with Divorce
Divorce results in dramatic lifestyle changes for everyone involved, but these changes are even more difficult for children who may feel overwhelmed or left out. Our divorce workshops for children help kids involved in divorce cases understand what is happening between their parents while teaching them ways to cope with the changes that come with divorce.
Helping Children Know They Are Not Alone
Workshop completion is required for children whose parents file for divorce in Polk County and over 800 children complete our workshops every year. During the workshop, trained facilitators provide caring and respectful age-appropriate education about divorce. Children participate with kids their age and engage in creative and positive activities that teach them skills to adjust to their new lifestyle.
We are resuming our educational workshops to school-age children of divorce in Polk County. For the remainder of 2021-22 school year, our workshops will be virtual on Zoom. We plan to return to in-person workshops this summer. You may register for a workshop here.
Workshop fees are $40/one child or $80/family. To request a reduced fee based on low-income status, contact us.Contact
My son LOVED this experience and asked if he can do it again! This completely surprised me—it’s out of character for him to be enthusiastic about this kind of thing. So, thank you! Well done.Parent of a workshop student
