Bruce Fisher's "Rebuilding" books and workshops have influenced hundreds of thousands of divorced persons worldwide. Built around ten carefully designed "lesson plans," the workbook offers a self-help or group work plan for systematic progress through the most important steps in divorce recovery. Included are sessions on the nine most important "Rebuilding Blocks" of divorce recovery: Adaptation, Grief, Anger, Self-worth, Transition, Openness, Love, Relatedness, and Sexuality. Each lesson plan includes behavioral objectives, a meeting agenda (including suggested group exercises), and “homework” for the following week’s seminar. Self-help readers will enjoy the supplementary readings (poetry, articles, letters), specific exercises that may be completed alone, suggestions for affirmations, and other features of the “workbook” format. Divorce recovery groups find the Workbook an invaluable week-by-week guide as they share their experiences and work together to recover from the divorce crisis. The Workbook is widely used by therapists and other growth facilitators as a systematic plan for their seminars on divorce. Expert guidance from distinguished divorce therapist Bruce Fisher, together with the informal, readable, warm and friendly style of this manual, make the Rebuilding Workbook an outstanding resource for anyone involved in the process of putting life back together after divorce.

About the Author:

Bruce Fisher, Ed.D. (1931-1998) developed the "rebuilding" model of divorce recovery nearly 25 years ago. Founder and director of the Family Relations Learning Center (Boulder, Colorado), he personally trained thousands of individuals and therapists in this approach, enriching the lives of hundreds of thousands worldwide. He was a highly popular divorce therapist, author, and teacher, and a Clinical Member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy. His "Fisher Divorce Adjustment Scale" is an internationally recognized measure of adjustment to the ending of a love relationship.

Bruce grew up on a family farm in Iowa, was the first in his family to earn a college degree, and went on to a doctorate from the University of Northern Colorado in human development. His dissertation research focused on the development of the Fisher Divorce Adjustment Scale.

Bruce's widow, Nina Hart, is co-author with Bruce of the popular relationships book, Loving Choices. Nina continues the teaching, training, consulting, and therapy work she and Bruce did together for more than fifteen years.
