Teachers supporting young children experiencing parental separation and divorce: A strengths approach

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

While there is much research about the social, emotional and academic effects of separation and divorce and diverse family composition, there is a paucity of research focusing on the nexus with education and how teachers work with these children and their families to facilitate adjustment to their changed family circumstances. Through vignettes, we used a Strengths Approach to explore the practices of teachers when working with these children to promote wellbeing and learning. Teachers focused on building on the strengths of the situation and the child to support them to visualise a positive picture for the future and make adjustment to their changed family circumstance.
