dc.description.abstract South African society has been plagued by traumatic events that have influenced many people including children. Within a systemic context children are impacted upon by various micro-systems within which they find themselves, for example, the family, the school and church amongst others, as well as the macro-system of society as a whole. Divorce is such a personal yet extremely traumatic experience especially when there are children involved. Research shows that the effects of divorce are often felt for many years later. This research study was approached from a qualitative perspective examining the impact of divorce on children in different developmental stages. It highlights ways in which children could be assisted during the crisis of divorce and explores protective factors that would facilitate post-divorce adjustment. The study included short-term therapeutic intervention with six children attending two schools in the Western Cape. By it’s very essence this study allows one to offer guidance to schools and parents with regard to emotional support for learners who have been through similar experiences. en_US
