“I Don’t Want to Choose” is a newly developed school-based curriculum for groups of middle school
children whose parents are separated or divorced. The program is designed to be run by a professional
who is familiar with this age group such as a school social worker, school psychologist, guidance
counselor, teacher, or school administrator. The purpose of the program is to teach children how to resist
the pressure to choose between their parents by developing a stronger sense of self. The program can
operate during lunch or other non academic portions of the day so that it does not take time away from
their school activities...
