One of the social work groups that I offer at Haines is a Family Changes Group. This program is an educational and support group designed to help young people better understand their feelings related to recent, significant changes in their lives. These changes can include, but are not limited to: (divorce, separation, the death of a parent, or a family member being in jail.
The group provides an outlet for discussion and interpretation of the emotions that children experience with change, and provides instruction in coping strategies. The goal of the group is to help children learn how to deal with those feelings in a healthy, manageable way. If you have any questions, or are interested in having your child participate in this group, please feel free to contact me.
