to be held at

The Open Center,*  22 East 30th St., New York City   (map)

This workshop will address effective ways of offering psychotherapy, through the use of drawing, play and talk, to children and their families who are going through separation and divorce.  Transcripts of couple sessions and a family evaluation session will be presented and discussed.  Children's drawings will be shown and analyzed to demonstrate the therapeutic model, and to illustrate how the youngest family members carry their worries and unprocessed family dynamics during separation and divorce.


v Participants will learn a model of family assessment that helps all family members manage worries and concerns about separation and divorce.


v Participants will understand how the therapist's treatment approach is affected by the therapist's personal feelings about separation and divorce.


v Participants will learn how to set up a family play space that facilitates intergenerational comfort in therapy
