Popular Divorce Support Group Starts New Series

Fairfield and Norwalk, CT Psychotherapist and experienced workshop facilitator Caroline Temple, MSW, LCSW will be running another of her popular Divorce Support Group series starting June 3, 2010 for eight weeks.

Online PR News – 11-May-2010 – – Fairfield, CT – June 3, 2010 sees the return of an popular post-divorce support group in Fairfield, CT. ‘Flying Solo – Healing Through the Aftermath of Divorce,’ is an 8-week course offering a safe, confidential forum for women coping with the often unexpected ramifications of their post-divorce lives. This evening group is the creation of Fairfield and Norwalk-based psychotherapist Caroline J. Temple, MSW, LCSW, a divorcee herself.
As a holistic psychotherapist in private practice, Temple sees an ongoing and ever critical need for post-divorce support. Nationwide figures consistently show that 50% of marriages end in divorce and many women find themselves ill prepared for some of the realities of life afterwards.
“Divorce support groups can be life changing,” says Temple, who has organized and led similar groups for over 10 years. “Group connects women with others going through similar situations, reducing their isolation and providing knowledge and power to lessen their fear and help them work through their grief.”
Temple is quick to point out that ‘Flying Solo ‘s’ main aim is to empower and support participants on an emotional, financial and practical level.
“This is not just a group where people are telling their (war) stories but more of a forum to gain back control of your life in all its varied aspects,” says Temple. To that end the group will host guest speakers at some of the 1.5 hour weekly sessions. Experts may include attorneys, financial planners, tax accountants, medical insurance specialists, career coaches and anyone else from whom the group would like to hear.
“Divorce today can lead to situations where couples continue to live together or share the same house post divorce,” says Temple, adding that the strain on parents and children can be unbearable. The emotional, financial and practical challenges of divorce often continue well past the final divorce decree, and current economic realities only exacerbate that situation. When this is combined with typical post-divorce feelings of depression, isolation and hopelessness, as well as the additional stressors of having to return to work and/or seeing living standards drop, groups like ‘Flying Solo’ become critical.
“If you really participate in this forum, you will find there is life after divorce and it can be a good one,” says Temple.

Space in ‘Flying Solo’ is limited to 10. To register or find out more information, please visit www.mywisewoman.com or call Caroline Temple at 203.866.9333.
