Divorce in a family is a stressful event. In measuring the impact of divorce, it is often characterized as one of the most stressful life events that a person can experience. It is almost equal to experiencing the death of a parent, spouse, or even child. Each individual in a family experiences this change very differently. Getting support before, during and after can be useful. This support can guide a family through this transition in a way that honors each person’s unique experience of this transition while maintaining a sense of integrity of the family. This support can be especially important when children are a part of the family.
