Here's a topic not covered enough on these pages. There've been plenty of posts about making relationships work, about anger management, couples communication, and the like. But how to approach the end of a marriage? How to make a divorce work?
The web has some free worksheeted answers: Activities for helping children deal with divorce, financial planning docs from the Institute for Divorce Financial Analyts, a pair of WISH worksheets for kids from I Am a Child of Divorce.
And New Harbinger just put this out: Getting Through My Parent's Divorce -- A Workbook for Children Coping with Divorce, Parental Alienation, and Loyalty Conflicts. Follow the Amazon link for more in the category. Could come in handy. Good luck.

From consultant/coach Dewey Schott, by way of the books, Banishing Burnout and The Power of Full Engagement, here's a managing burnout presentation (with worksheets) along with a webinar conversation (which we haven't clicked on). Seems to be common sense stuff, perhaps worth mulling if you've ever felt or expect to feel burned out at work. Most people.

From the new Mindfulness Workbook for OCD, by Jon Hershfield and Tom Corboy, here's a linked chapter about Relationship OCD (hit "click here to read an excerpt"). What's Relationship OCD? From the excerpt:
ROCD is difficulty in tolerating uncertainty about the quality of a relationship and the genuineness of your feelings about another person. This isn’t the typical doubt you might expect when, say, one person is ready for marriage and the other isn’t. This is the kind of doubt that seeps in insidiously and chips away at the very concept of love and fidelity.Much more about using mindfulness-based CBT to take on OCD symptoms in the workbook.
