Here is an excellent explanation of christian divorce counseling from Del Deaton, a pastoral counselor from Michigan.
I am very grateful for his explanation. I am not qualified as a pastoral counselor or as a christian counselor to really comment on christian divorce counseling.
I can certainly comment on the benefits of developing a personal spiritual path, but that does not offer any help to the christian divorce counseling process.
I do know about stress management, and have taught a wonderful heart based program to my domestic violence perpatrators for many years.
The Heartmath technology teaches me to manage the time between heart beats by asking the nervous system in my heart to learn to regulate itself when I present it a certain image and breathing pattern.
Perhaps you were unaware that your heart had its own nervous system. It does, and that nervous system is robust enough that it can learn and make decisions independently of any other brain I have.
Heart intelligence is affilliative and cooperative, so when I access it I can choose different behaviors than I would if I were filled up with adrenalin and cortisol.
I believe operating from a heart based intelligence would be an important part of the christian divorce process as it takes me to a prayerful physiology, and I can access it heart beat by heart beat.
If there are children in the family, perhaps they will benefit from a chance to learn Heartmath, which does help them maintain their test scores, and gives them a success to hang their hats on during this difficult family time.

When I was beginning my personal growth journey, a wise person told me that when I was feeling resentful or afraid or sad, that I should remember the phrase "gratitude is the attitude" when I was ready to feel better. That phrase has helped me feel better tens of thousands of times.
Would you share what you are most grateful for? Your story could be just what another person is searching for to renew themselves? Thanks.
