The first phase of the workshop is based on the video series, "Rebuilding the Castle That Has Come Down" by Dr. William Flanagan, and the popular book, "Growing Through Divorce" by Jim Smoke. Also included in this phase are classroom presentations and small group discussion. Each phase of the program includes specific goals. They are to:

Phase I
Accept the fact that your relationship is ending. Acknowledge your contribution to the breakup. Learn to appreciate the value of forgiveness in the healing process. Find emotional healing.

Phase II (A and B)
Let go of past injustices. Reflect on and learn from your past. Visualize your future. Grow stronger as a single person.

Phase III
Be clear about your preferences in mate selection. Develop a personal plan of action to have healthy relationships. Recognize opportunities for personal growth that your divorce provides. Accept that effort and risk will be required to grow.


Guidance is provided by facilitators who have been through a divorce and have attended the workshop themselves. They have received additional training from experienced facilitators who have participated in the Divorce Recovery Workshop for many years. The leaders are not therapists, lawyers, or ministers. They are ordinary people who have been where you are and have a desire to help you. They can assist you in finding a path to healthy recovery.
