Divorce Therapy for Children

Children are affected by parental separation and divorce in different ways. Research has indicated that children react in different ways at different ages and that other factors than parental separation alone influence the degree to which a child’s adjustment can be affected by parental separation and divorce.
Psychologists can help parents to determine whether or not their child’s reaction to their separation is normal or is cause of concern. Psychologists can provide treatment for children and consultation to parents when the child’s adjustment is seriously affected. Psychologists can also help parents who cannot agree on parenting arrangement to determine what is in the child’s best interests by offering custody/access evaluations.
