A Divorce Support Group In New Jersey & New York Facilitated By Professionals
Facilitated by Rachel Alexander, Esq., FOP, CFT, this peer support group is a confidential place to openly discuss divorce-related problems and receive feedback from others who have dealt with similar situations.
Although divorce is not uncommon, it can still be an alienating and isolating experience. Antidotal to a sense of aloneness is coming together in a group; that’s one of the reasons we believed a divorce support group in NJ & NY was necessary. Marriage is still associated with social structure and status, financial benefit, and belonging. Even when a marriage is ending for good reason, divorce is often disconcerting and disorienting. The loss of not only the marital relationship, but all that surrounds and is identified with it, can profoundly affect divorcing individuals.
In a divorce support group, listening and sharing with others in similar circumstances can be constructive and normalizing, contributing to healing.
You Can Get Support In This Unique Divorce Support Group That Family Members Often Can’t Provide
While some people are blessed with supportive family and friends, many find that they are remarkably alone when it comes to their divorce. Sometimes even a substantial support system feels insufficient when it comes to the overwhelming, ongoing crises presented by divorce. Certainly, the more substantial and multitiered your support group, the better. However, in order to sufficiently address the emotional issues, having a professional, therapeutic component is often essential. A support group offers a therapeutic, helping community – the group itself is a curative component of the healing process.
Regardless of how plentiful (or wanting) your available reinforcements seem, having additional support during this time is usually a good idea. When you feel supported, you are more able to make grounded decisions and give more to those who depend upon you. This makes finding a divorce support group in NJ & NY even more critical.
Sharing concerns, feelings and experiences in a confidential, open, non-judgmental environment can be productive—it can help you alleviate isolation and increase hope and perspective.
