This workbook is a helpful adjunct to the Teen First Divorce Treatment Program facilitator’s guide, covering the same topics as the group sessions. Although not required for program implementation, the workbook allows group members to make personalized written responses and serves as an enduring reference and reminder after group treatment ends. Therapists and others working with teens will also find the workbook useful as a stand-alone resource for individual counseling.
