Self-care is one of the most important tasks for parties going through a divorce or other family law matter. Research shows that the divorce process is akin to the grieving process that follows a death, leaving parties struggling with the accompanying emotions in the midst of a financially challenging time. In this video interview, Owner/Lead Attorney Jill Brittle spoke with Lisa Gabardi, PhD, who suggests shoring up your support system during the divorce process, which includes leaning on trusted family members and friends, especially those who can be reasoned and balanced and provide perspective (versus inflaming emotions). Additionally, establishing a strong professional support team is key: your lawyer, mediator, Collaborative team, mental health professional, and religious leaders.
