KIDS stands for Kids in Divorce Situations and is a child-friendly 8-week program that aims to support children after their parents' divorce or separation. 

Children (aged 7 tot 12) are supported in one-hour group sessions with other children through activities. The program creates a safe space for the child's voice to be heard. 

 

KIDS is child-centred and strength-based which allows children to explore tools and strategies that are suitable and realistic for them. It aims to guide children through a challenging time in their lives which, research shows, reduces the risk of emotional and behavioural problems later in life.

 

KIDS is run by two experienced therapists who are both certified facilitators and have specific training and expertise in parenting and divorce-related issues. 

The program is evidence-based and developed in The Netherlands in 2001.
