“A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new”.
Family can be wonderful, complex and difficult. We welcome you to our Community Blog, and we hope you will visit often and share your thoughts, questions and comments. While our focus is on familiesÂ experiencing divorce we invite comments on any family issue that you feel would be valuable to share.
IfÂ you are Â contemplating divorce , or somewhere on the “divorce highway” , you already know that there are lots of emotions involved with divorce, for you, your (soon to be)Â “ex/spouse” and, if you are a parent, forÂ your children.
Here, you can ask questions, vent (in a respectful way of course), commiserateÂ and share your experiences with others. Â We hope that by visiting the Community Blog you will find ideas that will help turn your ex/spouse into a co-parent and create a “new normal” for you.
Our expertise as Marriage and Family Therapists will provide topics that we have found are important or even painfulÂ to most of our clients in our practice at Family Therapy Associates, in Coral Springs, Florida .
As authors of Pro-Active Parenting After Divorce, a Florida Parent Education and Family Stabilization courseÂ ( aÂ required course for parents of children under 18 years of age) we also willÂ bring youÂ educational information for comments and discussion. By the way, this course is approved by the Department of Children and FamiliesÂ to be offered in all Judicial Circuit Courts in the State of Florida .
As the expert “on your life” we invite you to share your thoughts on what your experience is like and ask any question that may be keeping your “stuck”.
We thank you for visiting and hope we can make your journey a bit easier and help you find solutions that “fit” for you!
