Book description
This engaging story and collection of therapeutic activities helps very young clients cope with divorce. Cory, the central character in the story, helps children gradually confront and process their feelings and reactions related to the divorce. Questions and re-enforcers are woven throughout the story to captivate and sustain the child’s interest in the story, and to evaluate and encourage the child’s integration of the material. Includes a reproducible story, activities, and detailed parent handouts. Ages 4-8. 128 pages. ISBN 978-0-9685199-8-1

This publication is part of the Cory series of books with more versions coming soon on topics such as sexual abuse, domestic violence, and grief.

Pre-publication reviews
“This volume is a great contribution to the library of therapists who work with very young children of divorce. It provides imaginative, engaging activities for children and includes parents on the therapeutic path with specific tips and handouts. Inventive and unique!”
