Description: Divorce is a significant transition of adult life. However, since most people only divorce once, they enter into the confusing divorce process with no experience, wearing blinders, and on an emotional roller coaster. This may be the time wo/men need a therapist most. But, many therapists don't have the knowledge necessary to help their clients identify the patterns and themes that are common in every divorce. Mental health professionals can best help their clients deal with the trauma and transition of divorce when they are aware of the wide range of divorce-related decisions a client needs to make and why a particular choice might be the best fit. Therapists attending this course will be better able to help their clients clarify their divorce strategies and expectations. This course covers (1) The Phases/Stages/Aspects of Marriage and Divorce, (2) The Role of the Therapist during Divorce, (3) The Psychological/Emotional/Social Divorce, (4) The Basics of the Legal/Financial Divorce, including the 4 paths to divorce (DIY, Mediation, Collaborative, and Atty-Driven) and (5) Helping Clients Move Forward Post-divorce.
