Follow-up on Divorce Zonder Style from KVTA show Saturday October 19, 2013 on Dealing with Stress


On Saturday, October 19, 2013, we discussed how to deal with increased stress levels generally and in connection with divorce related issues. Divorce falls in the top 10 life stressors. Even knowing and being supportive of some one who is contemplating or going through a divorce and adjusting to a new life can be stressful.

Can someone going through a divorce learn to chill out and keep their sanity? My guests Elaine Miller-Karas, LMFT, and Jennifer Burton, LMFT, CEAT answer with a definitive “yes you can!” At the Trauma Resource Institute (TRI) they teach resiliency and wellness skills to both professionals and lay persons. These are skills that you help you bounce back from stress. Burton said even her teenage son uses them when he gets stressed and pushes on the wall instead of getting angry. There’s even an app for that called iChill that can be downloaded on your smartphone or PC. More information on TRI can be found at www.traumaresourceinstitute.com. [Read more…]
