Colorado State University Will Host Workshop to Help Children Cope with Divorce and Remarriage

Colorado State University’s Department of Human Development and Family Studies will host a community workshop, "Helping Children Cope with Divorce and Remarriage," May 3.

The seminar, free and open to the public, will be presented by Kevin P. Lyness, professor of Human Development and Family Studies, who will discuss what parents can do in situations of divorce and remarriage to help children cope.

The workshop, part of the Families at Five series, will run from 5:45-6:45 p.m. in Room 113 of the Gifford Building on campus. Free parking is available in the "A" lot west of the Gifford Building.

Children are welcome to attend the workshop with their parents or they can participate in a program designed for their age group. The children’s workshop, "My Family’s Changing," for participants ages 3-6 and 7-11, will focus on feelings about divorce and remarriage and will include a discussion on how to cope with a changing family.

This lecture concludes the spring series of Families at Five. The series will resume in the fall.

The Families at Five workshop series is sponsored by the Colorado State University’s Center for Family and Couple Therapy within the College of Applied Human Sciences.
