    • Is there a list of weekly topics?

      Week 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.

      Week 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.

      Week 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.

      Week 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.

      Week 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.

      Week 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.
