The Divorce Transition
Divorce is usually a completely new life experience; many don’t know what to expect or if their experience is “normal”. Even those who take great care to plan their divorce are surprised by the roller coaster of symptoms of divorce. Some common symptoms of divorce are anxiety, depression, isolation, shame, decreased functioning, loneliness, lack of motivation, inability to concentrate, guilt, anger, distrust, and many others. Getting over divorce can feel excruciating without the proper tools and skills to recover from the trauma of divorce. Learning a new set of skills and tools to mange emotions and symptoms is the key to healing, and a way to insure that divorce is a transition, not a way of life.
