Divorce support groups

Erosta Elossa organizes men’s divorce support groups across the country. The peer groups are run by trained support group leaders and allow men to share their experiences and analyze their own divorce process. In the group, men can process their feelings about their divorce and work on issues related child custody arrangements and visiting rights. 

The group setting enables men to share their experiences and feelings about their divorce freely. Listening to the experiences of other men, whether they are relatable or not, helps men analyze their own process and realize that they are not alone with their feelings and problems. Divorce is often followed by a personal crisis whose intensity is comparable to the experience of the death of a loved one. The mutual support and sympathy between members of the group helps men to move on, let go of the past, work through their grief, and ultimately find a way through the crisis.
