Parental separation and divorce is a significant social issue in Australia. There are well reported academic, behavioural, psychological and social difficulties faced by children and adolescents of divorce. In this paper we suggest that a school classroom-based intervention which aims can directly engage children in an open discussion of parental separation and divorce in a supportive environment to help children build a preventative collective action for their resilience (Chaskin, 2008).
