Divorce Adjustment Groups.
Kessler, Sheila
Although divorce is pervasive on the societal level, it can be an exceedingly difficult time of adjustment on an individual level. One therapeutic method for facilitating "growth" in divorce is a group experience entitled "Divorce Adjustment Groups." The goals of this group are to: (1) help individuals regain emotional autonomy; (2) mitigate the debilitating aspects of divorce; (3) have a place to safely discharge some of the emotionality of divorce; (4) develop a broader concept of divorce; (5) meet new friends in a meaningful way; and (6) learn coping mechanisms that transfer into dealing with other losses. This paper also discusses the need for, the unique dimensions of, and the process of conducting the group. (RWP)
