Author of Divorce Poison: Protecting the Parent-Child Bond From a Vindictive Ex.

Board Certified Diplomate, Past President of the Association for Play Therapy

"Creative Interventions for Children of Divorce broadens the scope of engaging and relevant therapeutic tools for clinicians working with children of separation/divorce. This manual effectively integrates theory and creative technique in working with this population of children. It is a valuable asset to both the novice and experienced clinician."

—-Dr. Helen Radovanovic, C.Psych.

"Here is a wonderful collection of practical, creative activities to add to your repertoire of exercises when working with children of divorce. It provides pick-and-choose solutions for a variety of children’s situations."

—-Vicki Lansky
Author of Divorce Book for Parents and It’s Not Your Fault KoKo Bear

"This book contains positive and practical approaches to working with children experiencing divorce. The common issues for children and young people living through such changes including their feelings of loss and guilt, concerns about dating and remarriage, as well as coping and looking to the future are sensitively addressed. Useful suggestions around assessment and therapeutic management are considered for individual, group and family counselling. I particularly liked the air hockey game that cleverly addressed the challenges for so many young people of living between two homes."
