Research Press Publishes Divorce Treatment Programs for Children and Adolescents

Research Press Publishers is pleased to announce the release of Kid First Divorce Treatment Program, Teen First Divorce Treatment Program, and Teen Survival Guide to Parent Divorce or Separation. The Kid First and Teen First facilitator’s guide details procedures for conducting engaging and age-appropriate group sessions to help children and teens adapt quickly to the changes brought about by parental divorce or separation. The Teen Survival Guide workbook is a helpful adjunct to the Teen First Divorce Treatment Program facilitator’s guide, covering the same topics as the group sessions. Although not required for program implementation, the workbook allows group members to make personalized written responses and serves as an enduring reference and reminder after group treatment ends.

“These guides do a great job of normalizing the reality of different types of families while also providing behavioral and cognitive strategies for helping children deal with their strong emotions.”—Dr. Stephen Hupp, Professor of Clinical Child and School Psychology, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville
