- How do I
You may register for either program (or make
inquiries) by sending an email to the group
(firstname.lastname@example.org). You may
also register at the first meetings of either
program. Please provide your name, telephone
number, email address, status (separated, divorced,
or widowed), and how long you were
married. On-line registration is
- How much do the
programs costs? There are nominal fees for
Coping and Rebuilding. Fees cover the use of
the facilities where the sessions are held, handout
materials, and other incurred expenses. The
payment structure is different for each
program. The recommended donation for Coping
is $5.00 per meeting, paid at each of the six
sessions. The fee for Rebuilding is $50 for
all meetings, paid at the first meeting that you
attend (Note: New Rebuilding participants are only
accepted during the first and second meetings).
- What if I miss
a session? Unfortunately there are no "make-up"
sessions unless one is cancelled by the program team
due to weather or some other interfering
factor. Participants are encouraged to read
the materials for each session and answer the
chapter questions on their own. If you
miss a session, ask a facilitator or one of your
fellow participants to go over the topic with you.
- Do I have to
answer the questions given in each session?
No. Participants are
usually asked to consider several questions related
to the topic of each session. There are no
right or wrong answers, you do not submit your
written answers, nor are they shared with
anyone. The questions are simply used as a way
for you to think about your feelings related to the
topics. They are often used as the basis for
discussion in the breakout groups.
- How do I find
out if a session is canceled? In the event that a
session needs to be canceled, your facilitators will
notify you (you may also call them or send an email
to the program at email@example.com).
Rescheduling a cancelled session is discussed with
the whole group at the next
meeting. Cancellation announcements will
also be posted on this web site.
- I am
uncomfortable talking to a group of people I do
not know. Can I trust them? All participants (and
facilitators) are instructed to keep any discussions
and information learned during the programs
- I have a friend
(or acquaintance) that wants to take the
program(s) too. Can we take the program(s)
together? You may attend the program with friends and
acquaintances. You will not, however, be part
of the same breakout groups.
- There have
already been some sessions. Can I still join?
You may join Coping at any time during the
program. You may join Rebuilding during the
first two sessions.
