Best Audio Books on Separation and Divorce

April 18, 2012

Divorce is neither fun nor pretty, so whether you’re worried about the possibility of a future divorce, you are currently embroiled in divorce proceedings, or your married days are far behind and you’re left to deal with the aftermath of a breakup, you may be seeking information and advice on how to proceed. Here are a few audio books that can help.

  1. How to Marry Right and Avoid Divorce: Tips from Thirty-Three Years of Private Practice by Susana K. O’Hara. Just because one in three marriages these days ends in divorce doesn’t mean you have to resign yourself to the likelihood of becoming a statistic in splitsville. A long-time practicing psychologist (with 36 years of marriage under her belt), Dr. O’Hara uses case studies to illustrate how couples can avoid the blunders that often lead to divorce, instead taking a realistic view of the rigors of marriage in order to work together towards a healthy and happy union for life.
  2. How to Divorce as Friends…And Maybe Save Your Marriage by Bill Ferguson. Divorces are typically full of pain, resentment, and all manner of bad feelings on both sides. Ferguson offers an alternative to the fighting and stonewalling that often result from such a witch’s brew of negativity. He gives useful advice on how to heal, forgive, and move on with easy-to-implement tips concerning effective communication and conflict resolution. Above all, his tutorial can teach you and your soon-to-be ex how to treat each other like human beings rather than focusing on all the baggage that goes along with terms like “husband” or “wife”.
  3. The Unexpected Legacy of Divorce: A 25-Year Landmark Study by Judith Wallerstein, Julia Lewis, and Sandra Blakeslee. Over a 25-year period, Wallerstein and her colleagues followed a group of 131 kids who were products of divorce, charting the ways in which the experience contributed to their life views and the decisions they made as adults. This, the third edition in an ongoing series shows how, as adults, these individuals differ from the control group of kids whose parents stayed together. For any couple with children contemplating divorce or already separated, this invaluable audio book will provide insight that will help you to understand what your kids are going through and figure out how to ensure that the least harm is done.
  4. Healing After Divorce Subliminal Affirmations: Move On, Emotional Healing, Solfeggio Tones, Binaural Beat, Self Help Meditation by Subliminal Hypnosis. Not all of us can afford to spill our deepest feelings of betrayal and regret to a therapist during a divorce. But when we’re at our lowest we need to hear that life is not over, that we can move on, and that we are worthy of receiving love again. The positive affirmations in this subliminal messaging audio book will remind you that you are strong, you can heal and be whole again, and that it is possible to move forward and create positive relationships.
  5. The Good Karma Divorce by Judge Michele F. Lowrance. There’s no denying that divorce is a major event in most people’s lives, not to mention a force for destruction. But it doesn’t have to be. A domestic-relations judge, Lowrance has used her experience to create a guide for behavior that claims to guarantee the ability to settle any divorce amicably (provided that both parties are willing to stick to the program). With concrete directives and useful checklists, this audio book will help any couple to move past their personal feelings in order to settle the legal matters at hand, divorce amicably, and move on without adding the hardships of litigation to their list of woes.
