Suffolk County Psychological Association and Nassau County Psychological
Association are co-sponsoring this psycho-educational workshop for families that
have gone through a divorce. The workshop is being coordinated by Dr. Neil S. Grossman.


 


The workshop is family friendly and while parents can attend alone they are encouraged to bring adolescents and children over 6 years old. Part of the morning will include separate activities for parents, adolescents and children. Although the workshop is designed forfamilies, it also may be helpful for one parent, step-parents or an adult child
of divorce. Additional information about the workshop can be found at www.FamiliesRecoveringFromDivorce.org
You can register for the workshop through this website or by telephone at the
Library, 631 421-4530.


 


When registering please indicate how
many adults, adolescents (13-19 yrs. old) and children (6-12 yrs. old) will be
attending.


 


The workshop will:


 



  1. Provide information to help families readjust after a
         divorce.



  • Discuss the series of transitions that families typically
         go through, beginning when parents live separately. Later transitions may
         include another person living with a parent and becoming involved with the
         children, such as, a step-parent. For each transition new family rules and
         communication patterns need to be established.



  • Indicate how families successfully make these
         transitions, issues that may interfere with the recovery, and how to
         overcome these issues.



  • Report what children/adolescents want to tell their
         parents after a divorce and during different phases of the transition.
