Kris Humphries Divorce from Kim Kardashian

Divorce Detox blog by Andra Brosh

The Kim Kardashian/ Kris Humphries divorce is top news, just about everywhere you look. It is important to keep in mind that divorce can be one of the most excruciating periods in life, no matter who you are or how long the marriage lasted. Both Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries have a potentially tough road ahead of grieving and healing. It’s important to keep in mind that divorce is a transition, not a way of life. Both Kim and Kris have the resources to get all the professional help they need to heal from this trauma and create healthy future relatiosnhips. USA Today interviewed co-founders Allison Pescosolido, M.A. and Andra Brosh, Ph.D. to get a little perspective about the ramifications of divorcing in the spotlight.

“Being in the spotlight, regardless of how he got there, is really hard and this divorce now for him, is a very long way to fall from where he was,” says Brosh. “There’s a lot of pain and a lot of anguish that he’s going to be processing.”

Seeking professional help is the right step for Humphries, who should make sure he’s healed before even thinking about dating again, Pescosolido adds.

“While you’re processing, sure you can go out, but you might want to go out more as friends than trying to replace what you just lost,” she advises. “It’s important to grieve, and it’s also important to take personal responsibility for his part in the marriage. With a professional, he can look back and see how he contributed to the marriage, and then gain personal wisdom so he can move forward.”
