Coping with Divorce
Coping with divorce involves recognising how your THOUGHTS can directly influence your EMOTIONS and the meanings that you attribute to the break-up of a relationship.
Learning the skills for coping with divorce seems to be more relevant now that at any other time in our (the UK) history.
The Office for National Statistics estimate that approximately 50% of all marriages will end in divorce meaning, depending on how you ‘see it’, that divorce is as ‘normal’ as ‘staying’ married.
Whether you are recently divorced, in the process of getting divorced or are facing the prospect of divorce, it can often be a very traumatic experience which may have a long lasting impact on how you feel about yourself.
Divorce may be something that you want or it may be the last thing you want depending on the reasons you are getting divorced.
Whatever the circumstances of your particular situation, divorce tends to be a time of emotional upheaval and usually ends up with one party feeling worse than the other leading to what is often referred to as the ‘injured’ party.
Even when a divorce is as amicable as possible, it usually marks the end of several years spent living together and precedes a new chapter in a person’s life which can be quite daunting.
Coping with Divorce by Improving Your Resilience
Our beliefs based CBT approach provides a totally new way of dealing with ‘mental health problems’ that is not based on the medico-psychiatric-model of ‘disorders’ and ‘illnesses’.
There is plenty of research indicating that ‘labelling’ people as ‘mentally ill’ not only causes additional problems, but also leads people to feeling ‘powerless’ when it comes to solving the problems associated with feelings of anxiety.
Although divorce is clearly NOT a mental health problem, it can often lead to emotional difficulties that are commonly classified as ‘problems’.
