Stress levels increase at the end of a marriage, and almost always continue to increase while going through a divorce or having to co-parent with an unreasonable ex. How you handle divorce-related stress and anxiety can impact your loved ones – especially your children – so it’s important to understand the underlying causes of these emotions and how to control them rather than have them controlling you.
This podcast will give you a better understanding of the underlying causes of your divorce-related stress and anxiety, and offer useful coping mechanisms to help you deal with those feelings. Psychotherapist Alison Fosbery explains how a separated or divorced parent’s behavior can impact their child's development, and educates parents on how to help their children acquire healthy habits when it comes to coping with stress and anxiety. Her practical strategies offer long-term physical and emotional benefits for parents and their families.
