The Thriving Through Divorce Program offers support, education and resources to a broad community. Listen as she recounts the awkward celebration of her son's bar mitzvah with her x-husband, while they were in the heat of the divorce process. However, by the time graduation rolled around, years later, they were able to show up unified in celebration of their son. Reminding us that it is never too late to have a good divorce.

It is time to change the destructive narrative of divorce. Families are hungry for a different option. Together we will discover how to function as one family in two homes. There are high functioning, stable and happy divorced families living in your neighborhood. I want to hear from them. What’s their secret sauce? What did their journey look like? Do they have regrets? Hacks? Recommendations? Let’s find out. Each week I will talk with folks, just like you and me, that are self-proclaimed members in the Good Divorce Club. That’s it. Just stories. Transformative stories from couples, professionals, individuals and children of divorce. A group that has figured out some piece of the divorce puzzle. It's never too late to have a Good Divorce.
Since 2007 I have supported a wide variety of groups and individuals in their quest to be better together. As we improve our familiar relationships (work and domestic partners), we can also improve relationships with strangers across the street, across the country, and beyond. What happens at the desk goes home to the dining room table, and vice versa. Our ability to be kind, curious and tolerant towards each other will determine the fabric of our homes, workplaces and global neighborhood. Ultimately, I see myself as a social activist. Working towards world peace, one relationship at a time. I’m inviting you to join the movement. Let’s get better, together. ------------------------- Karen McNenny is a highly sought after professional speaker, facilitator, and coach. Her areas of expertise are human behavior and relationships.
