What to Expect:

Divorce Care has 3 components:

  1. VIDEO WITH EXPERTS – During the first 30 minutes of the meeting, the group will watch a video featuring respected experts on divorce and recovery subjects. Their insights will equip you to manage your stresses and answer your questions.
  2. DISCUSSION WITH PURPOSE – After the video, the group will discuss what was presented in the video and how to apply it to your life. You’ll appreciate the emotional support and the opportunity to talk out concerns and find solutions.
  3. PERSONAL REFLECTION – You’ll receive a book filled with tips, timely articles, and tools for personal growth and managing stresses and emotions. Find help for financial, legal, relationship, personal health, and parenting decisions.

Weekly Topics:

  1. Deep Hurt: Overwhelming emotions and confusion are normal after divorce. This first session helps people know what emotions to expect and how to set up healthy practices for a successful recovery.
  2. Road to Recovery: The road ahead after divorce or separation can look rough. Group members will learn about common roadblocks to recovery and signs that they’re making progress.
  3. Anger: “What am I supposed to do with all this anger?” Experts in the video answer this question and help group members learn when anger might be helpful or harmful and how to manage their anger.
  4. Grief & Depression: Working through the many emotions of grief and loss after separation or divorce is one of the hardest things a person can go through. This week’s session lets participants know what to expect with grief and how to handle guilt and depression.
  5. Loneliness: Divorce and separation can leave people feeling isolated and alone. This session helps group members overcome loneliness and learn what temptations to avoid when they feel lonely.
  6. Fears & Anxiety: Fear and anxiety can be paralyzing and prevent participants from moving forward. During this session, group members will learn how to stop worrying so much and face the future with confidence and hope.

  10. Forgiveness: Hearts that are raw from hurt can find it hard to forgive. During this important session, group members will learn what forgiveness really is, how to let go, and why.
  11. Your Former Spouse: Since their lives are still connected, it’s often difficult for group members to know how they should interact with their former spouses. This session helps them figure out what’s next and determine if a new type of civil relationship with their ex might be possible.
  12. Single Living: A person’s identity is often wrapped up in being married. This week’s session helps participants rethink their identities and learn how to move forward as a single person.
