Divorce/Separated Support Group

Starting Monday, January 9thth, from 5:30-7:00pm a FREE support group for women recently separated from long-term partners or those who have recently experienced divorce will take place at the YWCA in Bar Harbor. This casual gathering of women will provide the opportunity for participants to share their stories of loss and healing, experience camaraderie, learn tools from one another for moving towards strengthening one’s sense of self, increase self-esteem and make healthy choices. The first few sessions will be facilitated by Clinical Social Worker, Milja Brecher-DeMuro of The Counseling Collaborative. As the group solidifies guest speakers may be invited to share information regarding legal advice, stress management, financial suggestions, parenting support. This is a free and open support group. For more information, please call the YWCA at 288-5008. Participants are encouraged to bring knitting, crocheting, or any small craft project for their own enjoyment.
