Support for single parents

The emotional impact of separation / divorce on family members

In case of separation / divorce, the emotional health of children is strongly threatened. This depends to a decisive extent on the emotional health of the resident parent and the quality of the relationship between the parents after separation.

The parent himself needs external support to solve the problems that are normally solved by two people. Among the problems that arise from the separation of parents, we can enumerate: the suffering of children being separated from their parents and sometimes even from the home space where they grew up, financial difficulties, loneliness, health problems, depression, problems related to everyday life, suffering caused by the fact that the parent will have to raise the child alone, the suffering caused by the separation of their own children, the finding of a middle line between professional and personal life, the suffering of social stigma, the loss and / or deterioration of social relations.

The creation of EduKIND was possible, largely, due to the emotional solidarity of three women living in the same life context  ~ single mothers. Hence, we understand that it can be reassuring and comforting to know that other people have gone through similar experiences and that, over time, they have found viable solutions to deal with problems that seemed insurmountable.

We believe in the ability to turn a difficult personal experience into growth and development opportunities, both personally and professionally.

We are waiting for you in a space where, emotionally, you will feel safe and where we hope to offer you the answers you are looking for at this moment.

Webinar - Emotional support for single mothers

EduKIND, in partnership with Work at Home Moms, organizes monthly a webinar through which we offer free psychotherapy counseling to single mothers.

EduKIND team invites single mothers to a discussion where we can talk openly, with acceptance and empathy, about the many difficulties a mother encounters in a separation / divorce process.

Maria, a psychotherapist with experience in the emotional support of children and adults, can help in understanding the many vulnerable levels that arise from parental separation and can affect the child's development in the long run.

Georgiana, an educational entrepreneur, will share her personal journey from the moment of separation, the emotional impact and the solutions identified to meet the needs of the child but also hers as a single mother.

Participants have the opportunity to address specific questions about the personal separation / divorce situation in relation to the emotional health of the child, of the parents and the relationship between parents, to which they will receive answers from a psychotherapist.

EduKIND and Work at Home Moms guarantee the confidentiality of participation and discussion.

Relational communication workshops using the ESPERE Method dedicated to single parents

How do we talk to kids about separation / divorce? How do we work as a single-parent or rebuilt family?

Workshop 1: Introduction to the concepts and tools of the ESPERE® Method: - about the relationship (with the specifics of the couple relationship and the parent-child relationship), differentiating the person from her behavior and the relationship of feelings. Messages circulating within the relationship (gift messages and toxic messages). What happens in a couple relationship and then by parents, how the two mix and how the unresolved situations within the couple relationship affect each parent's relationships with the children. Visualization and concrete work on the participants' examples of the course.

Workshop 2: How to Explain and Show Children Relationships (Object Visualization): Couple, Parents, or Recombined Families (if there are concrete examples among participants). The separation or mourning process after the broken relationship. Visualization and concrete work on the participants' examples of the course.

Mentor: Dana Dragomirescu, Trainer and relational communication consultant with the ESPERE® Method

Socio-emotional learning workshops for single parent children - can take place in parallel with group activities for parents (relational support group / workshops).

Workshops are structured in the form of group psychotherapy. In a secure and playful environment, guided by psychotherapy specialists, children are helped to internalize socio-emotional learning by developing the ability to recognize, express and manage emotions, express empathy, interact emotionally healthy with others, resolutely resolve conflicts, develop resilience (ability to adapt to unexpected changes or difficult situations without being overwhelmed by events). The therapeutic game is essential for both harmonious and cognitive emotional development, so we will use creative methods (therapeutic stories, drawing, painting, modeling, role play, etc.) to meet the challenges associated with both dimensions of the children's personality.
