Family Counseling
Summary in Divorce

Counseling means getting help.

Family counseling helps divorcing parents deal with visitation, support and custody. Many children benefit greatly from counseling during what, for them, is the most overwhelming experience of their young lives.

After divorce, some people experience what is known as post-traumatic stress disorder, a psychological disorder that follows a period of intense strain or a series of traumatic events.

Finding the right counselor or therapist is not difficult. Clergy, doctors, and lawyers are professionals who may be in touch with the right people.
Community mental health agencies, family service organizations, college counseling and school services, the YMCA-YWCA, and hospital out-patient clinics are also worth a call.

Single-parent families, a term that usually refers to female head of a household, find counseling helpful because they face difficult financial situations in addition to the pain and suffering, dislocation and divorce.

Another type of counseling deals with financial problems. Consumer Credit Counseling Service (CCCS), a nonprofit organization that helps people in financial trouble manage problems, works in both preventative and therapeutic ways. CCCS works to establish the cooperation of creditors and can map debt repayment plans before and after a divorce.
