When parents separate, they often live in two homes and kids need to find ways to build their own bridge between their parents’ homes. Children have to work out what those bridges are, and cross them to enable them to move between their mum and their dad (and possibly new families as well).
This program assists children to understand the type of bridge their parents have built and learn how they can cross it safely.

Who is it for?

Children aged eight to 12 whose families are living in separate places.

Key outcomes

Building Bridges aims to assist children to:
• work on building resilience
• understand their feelings about parental separation, including covering arguments and fights
• become aware of the changes in families following separation
• understand their right to be safe in their family
