Broken Open: Lessons Learned from Navigating Separation and Divorce

  • AUCCCD 2016 Annual Conference Tampa, FL (map)


As mental health and relationship experts, the general public assumes that we are immune to relationship stress and dissolution. Yet, we, too, experience separation and divorce but may carry significant stigma and isolation vis-a-vis our navigation through this difficult life event. Very little data exist on how mental health professionals experience separation and divorce separate from the general population, despite having special considerations. The purpose of this presentation is to share views from a psychologist, social worker, and marriage and family therapist, from various school sizes and life circumstances. The presenters will highlight the various lessons learned that allowed them to navigate this often very private experience while upholding their commitment to running their counseling centers. The presenters hope to convey that such difficulty doesn't reflect being broken but an opportunity to be broken open.
