Uplift: Divorce Support Group for Students

Dear STEM School Highlands Ranch Families,

If you have not met me yet, my name is Libby Rivera, and I am the K-5 Social Worker at STEM. I am partnering with fellow Student Support Team members to bring a support group to STEM for Elementary students whose families are experiencing divorce or separation.

I am planning to use the Children of Divorce Intervention Program (CODIP) curriculum, which is an evidence-based program designed to help children cope with challenging family changes. The goals of this program are to provide a supportive group environment, enhance coping skills, enhance perceptions of self and family, and to encourage appropriate expression of feelings. To learn more about this program, click the button below.

Our goal is to hold the group on Tuesdays from 2:35-3:30, starting mid-January for 12 weeks. While details are still being ironed out, I wanted to send an interest form to gather information from families interested in having their students participate. If you are interested, please fill out the form via the button below and include information for all your students who wish to participate. Note that this group will be first come, first served, and early submission is encouraged.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me at libby.rivera@stemk12.org.

Have a great week!

In partnership,

Libby Rivera, MSW
