Separation/divorce is a very difficult life event that if it occurs, impacts all of those involved. Ending a relationship when there are children can bring about a plethora of changes and transitions that both children and adults need to work through. This could mean a change in residence, leaving behind a familiar home, friends, and school. It could involve adjustments to a blending of families and the navigation of new family roles and norms.
We do not talk about loss in our culture and yet every day we experience it in some big or small way. Whether our teenager is moving into residence, we are moving to a new city or we are leaving a job for a new one navigating loss is a common human experience.
