In the fall of 2011, Dr. Jeremy Jewell collaborated with the Children First Foundation to produce a series of treatment programs to help children and adolescents cope with parent separation or divorce. They are now available from Research Press Publishers (RESEARCHPRESS.COM/ 800-519-2707). Learn more or to purchase the programs. Both treatment programs consist of eight (8) core sessions and two (2) optional sessions.  Similar to the Children First Parenting Curriculum (2011), the contents of these programs were created through a comprehensive review of the literature, and teach youth how to cope with parent separation and divorce.  Because the topics in the treatment programs and teen workbook are similar to the Children First Parenting Education Curriculum (2011), they compliment each other.

The Kid First treatment program is appropriate for children in Kindergarten through 5th grade, while the Teen First treatment program is appropriate for teens in the 6th through 12th grades. Both programs are designed to be implemented in a school or clinical setting by licensed mental health professionals. Parents experiencing separation or divorce may also be interested in a workbook that will help teens get through this difficult time.  “The Teen Survival Guide to Parent Divorce and Separation” is also available from Research Press.
