Welcome to Divorce and Relationship Recovery Lubbock. This is one of several no-charge, weekly information/support communities intended for anyone dealing with separation, divorce, or other relationship challenges or losses.

Our meetings take place on Tuesday evenings at 7:00 pm, at Second Baptist Church at 6109 Chicago Avenue in Lubbock.

During the first part of each weekly meeting, we view a video or hear from a live expert on some topic related to the divorce/separation/loss experience. The second part of each meeting will include supportive, confidential smaller group time, to reflect on what we've learned and what we're dealing with.

We help people through the emotional, spiritual, psychological, legal, financial, health and child-related issues related to divorce and broken relationships. We welcome everyone, without regard to circumstances, timeline or faith background.

We use many of the same materials as in our other communities, including books and videos from psychologists Dr. Henry Cloud and John Townsend ("Boundaries," "Changes that Heal." "Safe People"), Andy Stanley ("Starting Over," "The New Rules for Love, Sex and Dating") and other experts. Between these and other video series, live speakers will include psychologists, therapists, and attorneys presenting practical, actionable information to heal and begin putting your life together again.

You can see selected sessions of the videos we use at www.divorceandrelationshiprecovery.org/selected-videos

There are no fees or registration or membership requirements. With a free Meetup account, you are welcome to join our online group, which will provide additional information about our group and our events. We hope to see you soon at one of our meetings!

"Necessary Endings" with Dr. Henry Cloud – and group time

"Endings are not a tragedy to be first feared and later regretted – but a necessary stage on the way to growth, says clinical psychologist and bestselling author Dr. Henry Cloud. Endings are a crucial way to get what we desire by shedding those things whose time has passed. The author addresses the benefits of concluding unsatisfying work, circumstances or personal relationships, and he offers guidance on diagnosing when the situation can be resuscitated or must be shut down. This "pruning" process can spark readers out of passivity or paralysis, getting them motivated and energized for change." You are welcome without regard to your relationship type or situation, timeline, circumstances or faith background. Learn more about our weekly meetings below. The time after today's video, as always, will include time of discussion and confidential sharing and encouragement.
