DivorceCare: Surviving the Holidays
Find help and hope as you navigate the holiday season. Post-breakup holidays look different. After separation
or divorce, your Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays won’t look the same as they used to. Traditions change.
Some family members won’t be there. Social gatherings can feel stressful, but DivorceCare Surviving the
Holidays can help! What is DivorceCare Surviving the Holidays? It’s a 2-hour seminar that’s offered anytime
from October through December. This short event includes a video, sharing time, and a “Survival Guide”
filled with tips and encouragement for managing the holidays after separation and divorce.
By attending Surviving the Holidays, you’ll learn how to:
- Manage difficult emotions
- Survive social events
- Give your kids a good holiday experience
- Find hope for your future
You’ll hear holiday survival tips from experts on divorce-related issues, plus real-life stories of people who
have successfully navigated the holidays after divorce and separation. Hear other seminar attendees explain
how they are dealing with the holidays. Share how your separation or divorce is affecting you. (No pressure to
talk—sharing is optional!) You’ll receive a personal copy of the DivorceCare holiday Survival Guide, filled
with tips, resources, and encouragement to help you through the holiday season.
