Divorce Illustrated

by Molly A. Minnick, A.C.S.W

Cover is an illustration by David, age 12, he titled His feelings overwhelm him.

Divorce Illustrated is the companion resource to Group Work with Children of Divorce. It was written approximately four years after the original publication. According to author Molly A. Minnick, LMSW, it was written for several reasons.

First, many therapist had been using the Group Work Manual for several years and they needed new ideas and projects to enhance the existing program. In addition, some therapist reported that they needed ideas for younger and older children. Divorce Illustrated addresses this request with activities for preschool children who cannot yet read along with thought provoking exercises for adolescent children entering adulthood.

Second, it was found that not all children can be seen in groups. Some children do not function well in the group setting. In addition, some settings where children are seen are not conductive to groups. Divorce Illustrated was written to address all of these needs. It is a manual which can be with the individual child in play therapy.

Divorce Illustrated is cross referenced so that it can also be easily used as a supplement to Group Work with Children of Divorce. In addition, there is a section outlining which activities are best suited for various aged children.
