Research shows that divorce impacts children well into their adult years. In fact Judith Wallerstein and her colleagues identified a “sleeper effect” where many children of divorce don’t even experience the full impact of the their parents’ divorce until years later as they become adults themselves. That said, there are very few resources available designed specifically for adult children of divorce. Chained No More is one of the very few resources written specifically to address the issues experienced by adult children of divorce.
After years of working with younger children of divorce and teen children of divorce, Robyn Besemann felt led to develop a program:
“…for the adult children of divorce to help them explore and address the issues connected with the divorce of their parents and other childhood brokenness.”
