10-week seminar

REBUILDING SEMINAR

Our 10-week seminar begins with healing and recovery from relationship loss, and then moves to uncovering the self-worth necessary for confidence and healthier future relationships.

I can’t imagine going through a divorce without having taken Rebuilders. It has been an invaluable resource for me. You become very close to people with whom you share such personal stories, and the ongoing support and care of this group of people is of immeasurable value to me. Worth every penny! IN addition to the group support, the content of the class is helpful as well. It helps you deal with the emotional aspects of a divorce in a healthy way, so you can move on. I’m grateful that a friend recommended this class, and I will pass on the favor by recommending it to my friends in the future.

FAQs

Can I discuss if this is the right Divorce Recovery program before enrolling?

Participants can make an appointment to meet with Norm Gibson, LCSW or Ilyse Bloom, MA Marriage and Family Therapy, for a discounted personal session. We discuss a range of topics– your test results, your specific concerns about emotional stress or your kids’ status, and goals for the course. Norm has practiced psychotherapy and meditation for 30 years. He often offers ongoing counseling and accepts health insurance. Ilyse offers counseling sessions to assist you and your family during and after the Rebuilding Seminars process.

Why Volunteers are so essential to the Rebuilding process?

Each 10-week class is served by a team of Volunteers, men and women nominated by their own peers and classmates, to make sure your Rebuilding experience is the best possible. By facilitating small groups, coordinating refreshments, and providing a variety of outside activities, the Volunteers help energize and deepen your Rebuilding experience. Because they have gone through the Seminar themselves, they are able to understand and relate to your own process.

Why do we support outside activities?

Although optional, our social activities can be nearly as powerful as the classes. By helping your confidence to grow in a safe social setting, this is one secret of Rebuilding, helping people re-enter the single sub-culture. Hiking and other outdoor events, dinner and a movie, or a favorite activity you may suggest – we help set it up and make it fun. These gatherings are also a great place to talk with your classmates and share personal situations.

Why is the greater Community of Rebuilders so special?

One of the great benefits of Rebuilding is the potential of friendships. If you choose to, it is quite likely that you will make one or more lasting friendships from your class. After graduation, the Rebuilding community-single adults who have done this work also enjoy many weekly activities together. These range from an afternoon bike ride to a weeknight book club, to golfing, or grilling out with new friends, and some events are kid friendly. Many events are announced on Meetup. Large numbers turn out for our Giant Summer Picnic and the Annual Holiday Ball.
