When a marriage crumbles, we see a life we once hoped for crumble along with it.  

It’s a crisis in every sense. And crises hurt. They are disorganizing and challenge our sense of who we are.

But, as painful as crisis is, we can use it to grow. When our current understanding of ourselves or others crumbles, we can use the pain to grow into more wisdom and a more solid self.

In this NEW podcast episode [“Differentiation and Divorce”], Dr. Finlayson-Fife joins Hyo North of the Leading With Grace podcast to talk about how differentiation can help those working through the complexities of separation or divorce navigate forward with wisdom and maturity.

Listen to the full episode to learn more about:

* Separation and divorce
