Children, Divorce, and the Holidays: Minimizing the Effects of Divorce

by Greg Lenacher

Children treasure holiday traditions and they are grieving just as you are but they are not as well equipped to deal with the emotional turmoil that they are facing.

In the paragraphs that follow I will outline some ways to make your first holiday season as a single parent […]

What Is A “Coach” and Why Do I Need One?

The now expanded definition of this concept  reads: “Coaching is.. a teaching, training or development process via which an individual is supported while achieving a specific personal or professional result or goal…and may be designed to facilitate thinking or learning […]

Life After Divorce – 6 Ways to Survive the Holidays

The Little Deaths of Divorce

 

by Arianna Jeret

When I entered the field of divorce mediation, one of the common statements I heard was that in the rating game of potential life traumas, divorce ranks second only to the death of a very close loved one in terms of the impact on the divorcing spouses and their family, friends, and workmates.
