Special Event - Surviving the Holidays - November 15, 6:30-8:30pm
Wondering how you will survive the weeks surrounding Thanksgiving and Christmas? Are you dreading these holidays, knowing that everything has changed and that happy memories from past years can't be recreated?
Our Surviving the Holidays seminar is especially for people who are separated and divorced. You'll learn:
- How to deal with the many emotions you'll face during the holidays
- Helpful tips for surviving social events
- Ways to give your kids a good holiday experience
- How to discover hope for your future
If you have children you're welcome to bring them along! Children age birth to 4 will be cared for by loving, experienced caregivers in a safe, secure environment. Children age 5-12 will go through their own Surviving the Holidays lesson prepared by DivorceCare. All our volunteers go through a thorough screening and background check process.
DivorceCare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. Don’t go through separation or divorce alone.
You don't have to go through it alone
Most people will tell you that separation and divorce are the most painful and stressful experiences they’ve ever faced. It’s a confusing time when you feel isolated and have lots of questions about issues you’ve never faced before. Our DivorceCare group meets weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each session has two distinct elements:
A Seminar with Experts
During the first 30–40 minutes of the meeting, we watch a video seminar featuring top experts on divorce and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting-to-watch television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies and on-location video.
A Support Group with Focus
After viewing the video, DivorceCare group participants spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in the lives of group members. Don't worry! You don't have to say anything if you're not ready to share. However, group participants usually report that this time of sharing provides real encouragement as well as some helpful next steps.
