The Place of Refuge: Calming the Storm of Divorce
The trauma of divorce. If you haven’t suffered it yourself, as a divorced partner or as a child of divorced parents, then you certainly have seen the pain, anger and bitterness of others, as it seeps through the wounds resulting from this painful ripping apart of a family unit.
Our documentary movie, The Place of Refuge, will teach couples how to have a different experience–for themselves and their children. There is hope and healing, and changing how our society handles divorce in order to restore the mental and emotional health of millions of parents and their children is the mission of this film.
Divorce is a national epidemic, affecting over fifty percent of our population in one way or another, with children taking the brunt of the damage. Because understanding, verbalizing and sharing their fears is difficult for children, their feelings and needs are often overlooked.
Mourning the monumental loss of their family unit is both healthy and necessary, yet children rarely get the chance, leaving the unprocessed grief to lie as a poison to fester, manifesting in long-lasting feelings of anxiety, depression and anger.. It doesn’t have to be that way. There are options available. It’s only a struggle and a battle if we choose it to be.
