dc.description.abstract There has been a steady increase in the specific divorce rate in the western world in past decades. The disruptive effects of divorce are common knowledge. What is less well known is the facilitating or mediating process which enhances divorce adjustment. The issue of divorce adjustment is of concern to mental health professionals. A growing number of divorcing and divorced women have sought divorce group counselling in one particular welfare agency in past years. The researcher has conducted integrated, unstructured groups whose theoretical underpinnings are an eclectic blend of social group work and group psychotherapy theory. The study was conducted as a qualitative descriptive-evaluative case study of two groups of women across a twelve week period. The broad purpose of the study was the description of the influence of participation in an unstructured group on divorce adjustment in women. A major question was the evaluation of those aspects of integrated group work which proved to be a mediating influence on adjustmental variables for women. en_ZA
