Divorce Services

Services

IN TERMS OF WORKING WITH CHILDREN INVOLVED IN DIVORCED OR DIVORCING FAMILIES, I PROVIDE SEVERAL SERVICES.
Lou Levin, Ph.D., Child and Adult Psychologist

1. Play therapy is often a very helpful process for children who are experiencing the effects of divorce. For this purpose, I work in standard play or talking therapy ways, with an emphasis on the issues related to divorce. To facilitate this work, I have several games which are specifically designed to help children articulate and process their feelings and ideas about divorce. Standard techniques (described in Play and Play therapy) are also useful in this work.

Divorce Resource Services

DIVORCE RESOURCE SERVICES
Philip Crump, Professional Mediator
Lou Levin, Ph.D., Child and Adult Psychologist

Divorce Resource Services is a comprehensive integrated professional service designed to supplement and to support the legal process of divorce. Clients and their attorneys work in concert with a team comprised of a Professional Mediator, an Adult Coach, and a Child Advocate to facilitate a dignified closure of the marriage without litigation. Mediated financial settlement and parenting agreements are then incorporated into the final legal documents. This shorter-term, results-oriented approach can significantly reduce both the emotional and financial impact of divorce.

A Childs guide to Her Parent’s Divorce

A CHILD’S GUIDE TO HER PARENTS’ DIVORCE

Dear Ann Landers: My parents were divorced when I was very young. They behaved wonderfully well, in spite of their differences. I have seen children of divorce in less civil circumstances and realize how fortunate I was. I have some suggestions for divorced parents, based on my parents’ model of correct behavior, and I hope you will print them.          –College student in Illinois.

1. Never discuss child support with your children. It should not be their concern.

2. Remember that children hear you when you talk on the phone and you think they aren’t listening.
Do not discuss anything that makes your ex look bad. Do not ever tell your child negative things about your ex, or give the impression that your ex is a bad person. Let your child come to his or her own conclusions.
