Parental divorce can be deeply disruptive to young adults and have a significant impact on how their adult lives evolve. There is a false message from our culture that divorce does not really impact adult children because they may be away at college, living on their own, or even married with their own children.
Group discussions will focus on the common themes that exist for Adult Children of Divorce:
• Adjusting to parents as new people and their new partners • Role changes following parental divorce and the impact on sense of identity • Implications for intimacy and romantic relationships following parental divorce in adulthood • Difficulties around setting boundaries and navigating holidays and special events with separated parents
