Divorcefor children, COUNSELING fills the cracks in broken relationships
The tension in a household during divorce can be stressful on a child and may cause him or her to do poorly socially and academically. However, if counseling was enforced it could help him or her understand the situation and learn how to cope wth it.
Counselors understand that emotional healing is a process, so they give children the opportunity to express their internal emotions. They also teach the child how to appropriately respond to the divorce of his or her parents.
Counseling helps keep psychological disorders and negative emotions from forming due to divorce. The children begin feeling loved, important, happy, and content again when they have regular appointments.
A group counseling session allows the children to start building back their social skills, which may have been broken when they were surrounded by the stress of the divorce. Through this approach the children learn how to manage their stress and gain back their self-esteem.
