Course overview

The impact of divorce can be devastating and long lasting on the couples involved in the divorce process, other family members, friends, work colleagues and above all, the children. It can impact on every area of a person’s life. Divorcing couples are often making big decisions without any emotional support or guidance and the emotional scars may remain unresolved. Divorce mentoring and therapy is a new and exciting area and more importantly it is much needed. This course provides an overview of the divorce procedure and in particular the emotional and behavioural aspects of divorce. It will equip you with the skills required to support, guide and advise clients throughout the divorce process and beyond.
