DivorceCare for Kids (DC4K)
DC4K provides your children with a safe and neutral place to gain an age-appropriate understanding of separation and divorce. They will learn how to process and share their feelings. The weekly session topics help your children learn that God’s love strengthens them and helps them turn their sadness to hope and their anger to joy.
Each session is filled with motivating and exciting activities. Games, crafts, role playing, discussion times, journaling, and activity books help your children process the divorce and move forward in their lives. The music, snacks, read-aloud stories, exercises, and Bible verses teach your children to relax and rest secure in God’s love.
- DC4K is designed for kids 5–12 years of age. Must be registered and have a parent in the DivorceCare group. For questions, contact Olivia Deisher directly: firstname.lastname@example.org
Child Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT) Training
- Starting Tuesday, March 26th, 2019 for 10 Weeks from 6:30-8:30pm. Reservations for child-care must be confirmed by Friday, March 15th.
Give your children what they need most: You
When children have problems, sometimes they don’t have the words to talk about them. Play gives children a way to communicate feelings they don’t understand or can’t express any other way. Play therapy has been shown to be an effective intervention with children for a variety of behavioral and emotional difficulties. Research has shown that motivated parents can be trained to be as effective as play therapists using play therapy skills with their own children, with as little as 20 hours of Child-Parent-Relationship Therapy (CPRT) Training.
Research studies have shown that Child-Parent-Relationship Therapy (CPRT) Training can:
Reduce or eliminate behavior problems
Enhance the parent-child relationship and marital relationship
Develop responsibility and self-control in children
Increase children’s self-esteem and self-confidence
Increase parents’ feelings of warmth for their children
Return control to parents
Child-Parent-Relationship Therapy (CPRT) Training is conducted in 10 weekly, 2-hour sessions. The atmosphere is friendly and accepting and the training interactive, making it enjoyable and interesting.
Some of the things you will learn include:
How to help your child open up to you
Therapeutic limit -setting
Recognizing emotional needs and building self-esteem
Fostering creativity, self-control, and self-responsibility
