The Fisher Seminars — Divorce Support
Many Colorado community and church organizations offer divorce support, “recovery” and “adjustment” groups, offering solace and direction at a time of estrangement and bewilderment.
One long-standing, highly regarded approach to such divorce support is The Fisher Seminars. (Note: Although this website offers a good description of this course, see links below for providers currently offering these seminars.) Initially designed by the late Dr. Bruce Fisher, a Boulder, Colorado, marriage therapist, The Fisher Seminars have been offered for more than 25 years in many states and foreign countries.
Through a confidential 10-week alliance with others in similar circumstances, the course teaches relationship building skills and offers divorce support to separated and divorcing parties (who attend independently and not in the same group with a spouse or former spouse).
