Format: Paperback
This is the first book I have seen that contains truly creative and engaging therapeutic activities to use with children dealing with divorce. The activities can be used with children in many settings. There is a curriculum that can be used in therapy or support groups, and a chapter of activities to use in family therapy. In addition, there is a handout for parents to provide them with tips on how to support their children through the separation/divorce process. The theoretical overview covers important topics such as the impact of divorce on children at different ages and stages, and how to work with cases involving Parental Alienation. This book is among the best I have seen on this topic, and it will be an invaluable resource for therapists, counselors, support group facilitators, etc. Other books on this topic I recommend:

Dinosaurs Divorce (Krasny & Brown)
Was It The Chocolate Pudding? (Levins & Langdo)

"Creative Interventions for Children of Divorce" was one of the first books I bought when I started working with families of separation/divorce. Since then I have accumulated many others but I must say this book remains my favorite and mostly used. The interventions are incredibly relevant to any child going through a separation/divorce. They are easy to prepare and administer. I love the section, "Activities at a Glance," which includes activity, goal, ages and modality, as it allows you to choose the most appropriate technique without having to find each activity in the book. If you are working with children of divorce I HIGHLY recommend this book.

Other books on this topic that I recommend are:

Helping Your Kids Cope with Divorce the Sandcastles Way

Parenting After Divorce: A Guide to Resolving Conflicts and Meeting Your Children's Needs

Tug of War: A Judge's Verdict on Separation, Custody Battles, and the Bitter Realities of Family Court

Truth About Children And Divorce

Defusing the High-Conflict Divorce: A Treatment Guide for Working with Angry Couples

While I have a collection of Liana Lowenstein books in my office, this has been one of the most useful for me personally as a Mental Health Social Worker. Providing individual and group therapy for children who have been affected by divorce and separation, I found that much of the literature and resources were outdated, stale or impractical. Thankfully, I was introduced to this author and this book is now well-worn on my shelf.

Creative Interventions for Children of Divorce does not require you to follow a set 'program' (which is great for those of us who tailor our interventions to the children we work with). It's chock full of actual practical interventions that can be used again and again. Directions and explanations are clear cut, the visials are fantastic and the variety of activities is incredible. Among my favorites is Liana's "Feel Better Bag" - a fantastic intervention that children can take home and continue to learn from long after therapy has concluded. This is truly one of those books that it doesn't matter if you've been practicing for 6 months or 30 years - your skills and practice will benefit!

On this same topic, I have also made use of and would recommend:

"At Daddy's on Saturdays" (Linda Walvoord Girard)

"I don't want to Talk About It" (Jeanie Franz Ransom).

Both are great kid's fiction stories to accompany therapy or to recommend to parents.

If you Lowenstein's work, you'll also like:

Creative Interventions for Troubled Children and Youth Liana Lowenstein)

It follows the same format, but has even more great ideas and interventions that anyone can use for a variety of presenting problems.
