Family Dispute

Adolescents of Divorce

This group allows adolescents to fully express their experiences and emotions surrounding their parent's separation or divorce.  It allows them the ability to shift their perception to create a working narrative that fosters understanding, love, empathy, and expression.  Often individuals experience the same event or situation differently and can develop very different coping mechanisms or defense mechanisms as a result. We will utilize a narrative approach to alter the script we tell ourselves in our life (especially around the system change of foundation and family) to bring about optimism and growth.
