Sandcastles is an educational group for children ages 6-17 whose parents have separated, going through a separation or divorce or who have been divorced for years. Helpful discussion and activities will focus on:

  • Adjusting to changes
  • Sharing and coping with feelings
  • Problem Solving
  • Communication

The Sandcastles Program is a one session, three and a half hour interactive group experience for children of divorce ages 6-17. Children learn to express their feelings and thoughts as they participate in Sandcastles. When children meet other children who face similar changes, it immediately alleviates the intense isolation children of separation/divorce often experience. Parents and children often leave the group understanding that they are not strange, or at all “abnormal”; feelings they report at the onset of the program. The wonderful benefits of this type of education is that it actually provides tools for solving the problems that exist as well as those that often arise later.
