Newport Beach Divorce Recovery Workshops Thursdays Through Oct. 29
Divorce happens in Newport Beach, in OC, and in California. It can be the worst thing that has ever happened to you. Some people are destroyed by divorce, go into depression and feel that can hardly cope. The Divorce Recovery Workshop is a non-profit program designed to help people grow through divorce. The program is open to men and women of all ages. If you are facing separation or divorce come to a support group that understands you.
The key to the group’s success is that all facilitators have been divorced and understand “first hand” the challenges of divorce. Understand that you are not alone. Last year approximately 25,000 people in Orange County experienced the dissolution of their marriage.
Jim Smoke, whose book we will be using in the Workshop, has said, “You can go through a divorce or you can grow through it.” No matter how close or distant the divorce experience is for you, you’ll find the lecture topics as well as the support and understanding of others dealing with similar issues to be tremendously helpful in making one of life’s most difficult adjustments. These sessions are designed for those who are dealing with the finality of a terminated marriage, rather than the possibility of reconciliation. Time: Thursday nights at 7:30pm through October 29th. Location: St. Andrew’s Church - 600 St. Andrew’s Road, Newport Beach, Calif. Call: (949) 574-2222. DivorceRecoveryWorkshop.org
