    Stillwater - A “Divorce Smarts” support group for separated and divorced professionals will begin Sunday, Nov. 6, from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., at the Caines Center for Psychotherapy, 936 Potters Rd., Stillwater. The group will run for six consecutive Sundays. Claire Caines, a licensed clinical social worker and director of Caines Center, will facilitate the group. Tom Caines, a life coach and group leader with divorce mediation experience, will co-facilitate. Together Tom and Claire Caines have led “Divorce Smarts,” “Divorce Talk,” and “Suddenly Single groups,” and have also provided divorce mediation services. “The holiday season is especially tough for separated and divorced people,” said Claire Caines. “A support group like ‘Divorce Smarts’ is helpful because people receive mutual support, hear practical suggestions on how to deal with life issues and focus on their future.” She added that the group is held in a safe, supportive atmosphere. A resource packet will be given to each participant, containing useful information for those going through this difficult life transition. For information, call 973-300-0428.
