 Butterflies: Play and Art Therapy
with Children of Separation and Divorce

Children whose parents separate or divorce are often overwhelmed by feelings of sadness, anger, guilt, fear, helplessness, worry, and confusion. Depending on the child’s age at the time, these feelings may be expressed in a variety of healthy and unhealthy ways. Often times, parents are too grief-stricken themselves to be able to support their children through this difficult time. This one-day workshop will provide information about the ways in which children of different ages may express their feelings about the myriad of changes divorce often brings to their lives, and will introduce play and expressive arts interventions therapists can use to assist their young clients to cope and to heal. The focus will be on experiential learning, so participants should come prepared to play!
