[February 18, 2009]  The DivorceCare seminar and support group will explore the role of depression in healing when it meets from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 24, at Jefferson Street Christian Church, 1700 N. Jefferson.

DonutsDivorceCare is a video seminar series featuring experts on divorce and recovery topics such as coping with anger and loneliness, financial survival, and single parenting. Each session also includes a group discussion.

"Facing My Depression" looks at losses that accompany divorce and how they contribute to depression, and identifies effective ways of dealing with that depression. The video features Archibald Hart, former dean of Fuller Theological Seminary's Graduate School of Psychology and a practicing clinical psychologist who experienced his parents' divorce when he was 12 years old. He is the author of "Helping Children Survive Divorce" and numerous other books.

DivorceCare will meet on Tuesdays through April 21. Participants may join the group at any time during the 12-week series. Preregistration is not required. Cost of the DivorceCare workbook is $12. Child care is provided.
