Abstract

Many primary school children have to deal with parental separation and divorce. Though some argue it’s a private family matter, the contact that teachers have with pupils places them in an ideal position to provide support through this difficult time. This article proposes proactive and reactive strategies that schools can employ to prepare children with the resilience to cope with and overcome these traumatic events.
