Everyone reacts somewhat differently to a divorce situation. Divorced parents with minor children will most likely remain connected in some fashion as they work together to raise, nurture and care for he needs of each child. Post-divorce disagreements can escalate and cause harm to the children if each party is not willing or able to put aside resentments towards the ex-partner and put the needs of the child first. Johnson Mediation provides couples with helpful tools and support services to resolve parenting conflicts or emotional issues that may arise while moving on after divorce. Post-Divorce counseling services at Johnson Mediation are provided by a professional mediator with experience in grief recovery solutions and mediating changes to divorce agreements.
Benefits of Post-Divorce Counseling
For some people, the loss of a marriage can be as emotionally devastating as the loss of a loved one. Transitioning to a new routine without the financial or emotional support of a spouse is sometimes more difficult than expected. Post-divorce counseling can be very beneficial for creating new boundaries, grieving a lost partnership, managing life as a newly-single parent and coping with the new normal. Johnson Mediation provides support services for many post divorce challenges.
