[March 25, 2009]  Successful parenting during and after divorce will be discussed when the DivorceCare support group meets from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, March 31, at Jefferson Street Christian Church, 1700 N. Jefferson.

DivorceCare is a video seminar series featuring experts on divorce and recovery topics such as coping with depression, financial survival and forgiveness. Each session also includes small group discussions.

"KidCare" looks at divorce's effect on children of different ages, advises parents on how to help their children cope with their parents' divorce and suggests ways to minimize the negative effects of parental dating.

Featured experts are Gary Richmond, first pastor to single parents in the United States and author of "Successful Single Parenting"; Bob Barnes, counselor and author of "Single Parenting" and "Raising Confident Kids"; and Archibald Hart, former dean of the Fuller Theological Seminary's Graduate School of Psychology and a clinical psychologist who experienced his own parents' divorce when he was 12.

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.

Call 217-732-9294 for more information.

Future topics:

  • April 7 -- "Forgiveness"

  • April 14 -- "Reconciliation"

  • April 21 -- "Moving On, Growing Closer to God"
