Navigating through an emotionally charged divorce can be difficult especially when children are involved. While hiring an experienced attorney is an important move to make to get the results you want. Hiring an experienced psychologist that specializes in divorce is also an important decision.

Divorce is one of the most stressful events you will likely ever experience. The emotional toll can drive you to make decisions that may not be in your family's best long-term interest. Having a therapist can help divorcees separate the emotional aspects of the divorce from the financial and logistical decisions that need to be made from deciding whether or not to keep the family home to a child visitation schedule.

Participants were given details about the cycle of domestic violence to gain a better understanding of the challenges people face looking to leave a violent and/or controlling situation.
