What is the course about?
The course is both practical and supportive, giving anyone who has been impacted by the end of a serious relationship the opportunity to discuss the challenges they are facing and the tools to deal with these effectively. These include:
- Facing the effects of separation and divorce • The importance of good communication
• Forgiveness • Resolving conflict • The impact of breakdown on other relationships
• Legal issues • Parenting issues • Moving forward with hope
Who is the course for?
The course is for anyone who has been impacted by the end of a serious relationship whether separated, currently going through a divorce or already divorced, either recently or at any time in the past. Although based on Christian principles of coming alongside those in need, the course is suitable for those of all faiths or no faith at all.
If you are seeing a therapist or taking medication prescribed by your doctor, please discuss your participation on this course with them. The material addresses the hard issues that arise on separation and divorce and may be challenging. While many people find a group environment helpful and supportive, it may not be appropriate for everyone. Please contact us if you want to discuss this further.
What is involved?
Each session begins with a simple meal followed by a talk, with opportunities for discussion in small groups. The small groups are led by people who have gone through divorce themselves. The setting is welcoming, relaxed and nonthreatening.
What will it cost?
There is a suggested donation of £35 per person for the course; this will include the course materials (book and workbook) as well as a simple shared meal to start each session
