Three Support Choices

We offer three levels of support for our programs:

  1. Private Client Personal Coaching
  2. Group Coaching
  3. Assisted by Friends

Private Client Personal Coaching: If you would like (1) personal attention by and frequent access to Dr. Young, (2) an individualized program tailored to your specific needs, (3) on-call personal help in handling a crisis, (4) maximum depth and permanence of change, and (5) the fastest possible speed of recovery, then personal coaching with Dr. Young is the preferred solution.

In a typical personal coaching program, you meet privately with Dr. Young, either in-person or over the phone, every week for 1.5 to 2 hours. A  3-step, 10-module program workbook is used as the springboard for discussion and action planning. The weekly coaching sessions are augmented by on-call” access to Dr. Young, so critical in dealing with the emotionally charged aspects of recovery. This is especially important during the initial stage of recovery in which you are Stabilizing your Present emotion-based reactions to the divorce and to the daunting demands of establishing a healthy, rewarding, and viable life after divorce.

 Group Coaching: If you (1) learn best in a social situation, (2) want an opportunity to develop friendships and a sense of community with others experiencing the same divorce trauma, (3), want to receive regular input from and contact with Dr. Young, (4) at a more economical price than personal coaching, then group coaching is a great choice.

In a typical 6-month group coaching program, you meet with Dr. Young and other clients (up to a maximum of 12) every week for 1.5 to 2 hours using the  3-step, 10-module program workbook as the springboard for discussion and action planning. In addition, you may participate in weekly Q&A sessions for a year. Not only is everybody in your group dealing with the same challenges of divorce recovery, but also they all “speak the same language,” having shared the same program workbook used in all the Smooth Divorce Recovery programs. The time spent in coaching represents approximately 48 hours of group coaching time with Dr. Young plus an additional 90 hours of Q&A contact time for a total 138 contact hours with Dr. Young .

 Assisted by Friends with Weekly Q & A Sessions: If minimizing cost while maximizing convenience of use, personal control of the pace, and personal flexibility are the critical issues, then using the 3-step, 10-module program workbook in conjunction with regular discussions with trustworthy friends and weekly Q & A sessions will give you the best bang for your buck.

In a  typical Assisted by Friends Support Program, you work through the same 10 modules from the workbook the coaching clients use.  Usually this would be on a 1 module per week schedule. You are “assisted” in this program alternative in three ways: (1) In addition to written instructions, each module contains audio and/or video instructions and comments by Dr. Young for each activity, (2) you will talk about your workbook responses with a friend at least once per module, and (3) you will be have live access to Dr. Young through weekly Q&A sessions for one year. This represents over 90 hours of contact time with Dr. Young.
