‘Adult Children of Divorce’ to begin Oct. 21 at Women’s Center

IOWA CITY, Iowa — A support group, "Adult Children of Divorce" will begin Thursday, Oct. 21 at the University of Iowa Women’s Resource and Action Center from 4 to 5:30 p.m.

The group will focus on how the divorce of parents affects their adult children in the past and present.

"My parents got divorced when I was in college," says Keri Neblett, Women’s Center group services coordinator. "No one really seemed to understand the impact their divorce had on my life. It would have been helpful to have support from others who were going through the same issues."

"Adult Children of Divorce" will meet Thursdays for six weeks. Please call 335-1486 to register for the group or to arrange for accommodations and childcare.
