Surviving the Holidays When You Are Separated or Divorced


Wake Forest, NC, USA, November 14, 2007 – People in the middle of separation or divorce often face Thanksgiving and Christmas with dread. Long-standing family traditions are shattered; the hope and joy that normally accompany the season are replaced by loneliness and depression.

DivorceCare, an international network of divorce recovery support groups, has launched a special “Surviving the Holidays” website to offer practical tools and suggestions designed to help a separated or divorced person construct a healthy approach to the holiday season. The website can be found at

The DivorceCare “Surviving the Holidays” website includes practical, actionable strategies that will help separated and divorced people:

- Reduce stress
- Minimize loneliness
- Manage tight budgets
- Establish new traditions
- Help children adjust to new family dynamics
- Help others in need
- Focus on the true meaning of the holidays

“Most people who are separated or divorced anticipate a dark, depressing experience as they face the weeks ahead of and during holidays,” said DivorceCare founder Steve Grissom. “We’ve designed this material to help restore joy and optimism to Thanksgiving and Christmas, even in the middle of a divorce. The information is not complicated — it consists of simple steps a person can take to make the holidays manageable and even enjoyable.”
