DivorceWorks was designed by two psychologists with 3 decades of experience with families going through separation and divorce. With a focus on emotional awareness and regulation, the app assists with coping during this difficult time.

The divorce rate, for first marriages in the US, has held steady at around 50% for the past few decades. Divorce rate for second and subsequent marriages is even higher. The rates of divorce in other cultures, where divorce was not always an option, have also gone up. Although most cultures do not sanction divorce, ending a bad marriage has less taboo associated with it. Many who are going through a divorce find it difficult to get the information, support and coping strategies.

Developed by two clinical psychologists, divorceworks is an app with tools to help people mindfully transition during the difficult process of divorce with a focus on emotional awareness. The app can also serve as a tool for therapists and attorneys helping their clients.

DIVORCEWORKS (as in you can make it work!) is a self help guide to help people who are going through a divorce, increase their awareness about what they are going through, assess how they are feeling, keep track of their feelings and follow check lists of things to do to cope, and also help their children with coping strategies.

This app is aimed at helping people from diverse backgrounds who may not yet trust the mental health or legal system and need some private way of navigating their emotions through the process. It has been well studied that self observation helps people effectively understand, manage and change their behaviors.

Although social, mental health and legal help is invaluable and necessary during this difficult time, utilizing this app may help using the other forms of help more accessible.

The app serves many needs:

  • Understanding the role of race, culture, ethnicity and differences between you, your spouse and your children.
  • Journaling to help soothe tender feelings, with feature to email journal entries if you wish.
  • Self help quizzes
  • Weekly reminders to help yourself and your kids – with a heart you "fill up" as you complete checklists.
  • Extensive resources and articles to help you understand the process
  • Comforting and cooling tips written by psychologists to help you keep on track
