Story Telling Technique for Helping Children through the Trauma of Divorce

In Family Changes – Explaining Divorce to Children Azmaira H. Maker uses a storytelling therapy technique as a tool to help parents and professionals to be responsive to a child’s feelings about family changes during the transition period of separation and divorce process.

Azmaira H. Maker, Ph.D. is a licensed clinical psychologist in family relationships, working with children, parents, and families.

In a heartwarming story for children, Mama Bunny helps Zoey Bunny deal with questions regarding Daddy Bunny’s recent absence from their home and what it means to be separated.  Lovsin’s colorful artwork reinforces the emotions and feeling of the dialog and storyline.

Two additional features enhance “Family Changes – Explaining Divorce to Children” as a resource. A note for Adults introduces ways to use the book effectively. “Process Questions for Adults to use with Children” provides 20 examples of unresolved questions the child may be experiencing.

Highly recommended.
