Children need opportunities to express their feelings about separation and divorce. Stepping Forward, our support group for children who are coping with separation and divorce, provides a chance for children to work through difficult transitions. These groups help children with the following goals:

  • To understand what is happening in their families
  • To express feelings about separation and divorce
  • To communicate with parents more effectively

Parents learn:

  • ways to communicate about the divorce with their child(ren);
  • what are developmentally appropriate responses to divorce;
  • strategies for coping with difficult issues.


These groups meet for 12-16 weeks in the evening. Parent groups meet simultaneously.
