Methods of working with children to overcome parental divorce
Project # NPJR-2020/10280
Four partner countries: Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Sweden.
During a divorce, they often feel a variety of conflicting emotions: anger, sadness, worry, relief, confusion, guilt, embarrassment, loneliness and nervousness - these are all common emotions that these children or teens experience when their parents' divorce or separate. Besides, they have sleeping problems, decreased self-esteem as well as difficulty in school work and other activities. As a result, all these trouble can be manifested as withdrawn or aggressive behaviour.
Our goal – to prepare teachers to provide understanding and support to children and to help them deal with divorce, anxiety and frustration.
The main outcome – a methodology for using informal activities to work with children to overcome divorce or separation.
