Course Details

Week One – Who Am I Now That I Don’t Have A Partner?

In order to redefine our lives as single persons, we must accept that the relationship has ended. Shock and denial are common emotions, so is relief depending on whether you were the dumper or the dumpee. Self-esteem and sense of worth are often undermined during the process and can lead to questions about identity. Strategies will be discussed and tools will be provided that will guide the journey into singlehood.

Week Two-I am Terrified of What’s Next.

The emotional roller coaster swings wildly between grief, anger, fear and loneliness. How can I deal with these extremes without feeling like I am going crazy? Strategies for emotions management will be discussed and practiced. What is the journey going to be over the next weeks, months and years? We will provide you with information that will assist you in making decisions about what’s next.

Week Three – What Really Happened?

An emotional autopsy (examination of the relational dynamics) will be done on the ended relationship…if we don’t examine the factors that led to the partnership demise, we are doomed to repeat history in a subsequent relationship. Given that 67% of second marriages break down, there is a need for reflection and understanding of unhealthy relationship dynamics that are at risk of being repeated. What needs to be done differently?

Week Four – And What About the Kids?

Children must not become casualties of separation. How do parents safeguard them and address their developmental and post-separation needs during this time. Creation of individual Co- Parenting Plans will be discussed. In addition, the topic of blended families will be introduced with some guidelines for embarking on a new relationship in which there are children.

Week Five – What Happens Legally?

Some legal/financial information about the separation/divorce will be presented. This information won’t replace your need for legal representation, but will assist in preparing for the legal process

Week Six – And Now That I Am Happily Single…?

Learning how to be single again and avoiding the rebound trap can be tough, but singleness for a period of time has its benefits. Let’s examine the reality of single life by understanding what we want in another relationship. What can you live with and what is non-negotiable with a new partner?
