The Parent, Adolescent and Child Training Skills (PACTS) is a series of highly practical guides designed for use by all practitioners who work with children and their families - community health workers, psychologists, doctors, social workers, teachers, parent educators, therapists, maternal and child health nurses and school counsellors.

The aim of this guide is to provide the practitioner with an understanding of the implications separation or divorce can have on children, guidelines to help parents prepare children for the break-up, dealing with the aftermath and ways to help children express the painful emotions that stem from the separation/divorce.

PACTS # 11: Separation And Divorce: Helping Children Cope focuses on:

  • Consequences and impacts of divorce
  • The 'first shock waves' - The fall-out, having to chose, coming to terms with the loss
  • Single parenthood and economic factors
  • Step-parents
  • Support systems for children of separation/divorce
  • Parenting after marriage ends
  • Counselling divorced parents
