The Impact of Divorce on Children by Dr. Barbara Sorrels
2.5 clock hours for Teachers, LPC/LMFT, LCSW & PhD
Approximately half of all marriages end in divorce, with most of them occurring in the first nine years of marriage. This means that younger children are more likely to experience the turmoil and initial shock of a breakup than older children. In order to help young children navigate the disruption of divorce, it is important to understand how they think and how they approach the world.
This webinar will focus on the developmental implications of divorce for infants, toddlers and preschoolers. Practical strategies will be shared to help children manage strong emotion and learn to cope with stressful events.
This is a five-part series that includes:
- The Impact of Divorce
- Divorce and Attachment
- The Impact of Divorce on Infants and Toddlers
- The impact of Divorce on Preschoolers
- Tips & Strategies for Parents
