Holding Space for Divorce


“Divorce is a painful, life-altering event like a death—but without any of the support or rituals.”

~Michelle Lamar, writing for the Huffington Post

Are you going through a separation/divorce?

Or, are you on the other side of one?

Do you support individuals through the pain/ending/transition of divorce?

Perhaps you feel helpless watching loved ones struggle and suffer as they strive to let go of a once treasured relationship. Perhaps you feel overwhelmed by the intensity of hurt, betrayal, and anger that have taken the place of what once was a loving union? Or, perhaps your separation/divorce was amicable/positive and you want to understand how to support friends/family who are struggling with their own losses?

What does it mean to hold space for divorce?

Amy Wright Glenn applies key insights drawn from her studies of grief, loss, and death ~ to the topic of divorce. Amy wrote her second book while going through a divorce and will apply aspects of wisdom gained from her own journey with research-based studies on the subject of the endings of committed relationships.

Whether you work formally as a mental health practitioner supporting individuals through divorce, whether you are a child of divorce, whether you are trying to make sense of your own divorce, or support those you love who are hurting from this pain ~ you are welcome.
