Parents and Professionals – Adolescence Is Challenging Enough on an Average Day – Help Your Teens Stay Stable During Family Changes

*Teens from divorcing families are more susceptible to depression, anxiety, and other emotional issues than are their counterparts from intact family units.*

Available in three languages, The Divorce Workbook for Teens provides a gentle yet decidedly effective guide to help teens address the issues they face as they experience this challenging life event.

More than 40 divorce activities worksheets help teens to tackle:

  • Emotional challenges of coping with grief, fear, guilt, depression, anger, and abandonment.
  • Physical changes of living in two homes, moving, visitation, and financial status.
  • Learning skills to help them to be cared for, be separate from their parents’ problems, to stay out of the middle of parental conflict, and to love both parents.
  • Developmental issues of their own sexuality, gender, and feelings about marriage and romantic relationships and how these are affected by the divorce.

Teens will find help from the straightforward yet sensitive approach of this book as they navigate their way through this tough life transition.

A++++++ Purchased for my teen nieces after a particularly difficult and protracted divorce ‘battle’ threw their world into a spin. Not only did they utilize them… the workbooks received rave reviews from their family counselor! (She called me to ‘source them,’ as she plans to use them in her practice.)”

Five stars.  One of the best books I’ve read dealing with divorce and how it affects the family as a whole, but especially the teenager in the home.  Let’s face it, teens are already going through so much.  This really does go through all the steps.  Dealing with the initial announcement, grief, thoughts of fault, denial, pain, hurt, anger, lashing out, and then acceptance.  This book also contains worksheets your teen can go through writing their own thoughts.  Each chapter gives examples of teens and their responses.  A must have for any home dealing with divorce and the teenager who lives in it.

My 15 yr.-old daughter loved this book, I would recommend it to anyone who has teens from a divorced family, no matter how old they were when you divorced.”

A must for any school counselor.  This is my go-to book for helping students dealing with divorce. Although it is a self-help book the activities can be modified to work with students individually or in groups. A must-have for any school counselor’s library.”

“Read this. It helped so much after my parents’ divorce!”
