The Seminar

“This seminar is life-changing and should be more publicized and available like the famous Al-Anon and 12-step programs. In one day, I’ve learned more than I have in 4 years being divorced.”
– Seminar Attendee

If you are separated from your spouse, going through a divorce, or are divorced, we encourage you to attend this seminar.

We understand the feelings of rejection, anger, fear, isolation, betrayal, guilt, and helplessness that can result from divorce.

You may feel like you are on an emotional roller coaster. One day you feel fine, the next day you feel hopeless, or you feel like you are still attached to your ex.

Emotions have a way of fooling us into believing that things will never change or get better. During this time, it is critical to gain a healthy perspective by understanding the root of your emotions, which will enable you to take the necessary steps to move forward with your life.

The Divorce & Beyond seminar addresses these issues in a safe, nurturing environment.

Everyone is given opportunities to share, facilitated by a trained leader. We’ve found that these initial discussions are best conducted in gender-specific settings. However, the support groups that meet after the seminar are co-ed. Each support group has a male and a female facilitator, enabling us to learn from one another.

Yes, divorce hurts, but we can help;
Our next seminar will be:
Saturday, Sept. 18 from  8:45pm – 4:30pm
At the Event Center at the Countryside YMCA, Lebanon, OH 45040

Register for the Sept. 2021 Seminar

Our registration fees do not actually cover the cost of the Seminar. Thanks to generous support from our partner churches and individual donors, we can keep our registration fees low.

We are very committed to helping those experiencing divorce, whether fees are in the budget or not. We never want someone to not attend the seminar because their divorce has put them in a tough spot financially.

Our registration page includes a “Pay What You Can” ticket option. However, our online registration process requires a minimum of $1, but if right now that is even too much, or you don’t have a debit/credit card, drop us an email, and we can get you registered directly.
