New group aids students of
divorced, separated parents
by Shelly Oudsema
University undergraduate women hav-
ing problems coping with their parents'
divorce or separation have a new counsel-
The organizers of "Adjusting to Recent
Parental Separation or Divorce" - the ti-
tle of the therapy program run by the Uni-
versity Psychological Clinic - said they
have found that many middle-aged parents
believe college students are too immersed
in their own lives to be upset by their par-
But clinic therapists said college stu-
dents may react in many different ways.
While some students may be relieved by
their parents' divorce, others may feel
hurt, confused or grief-stricken.
Group organizers added that although
the overall national divorce rate has de-
clined in recent years, the divorce rate for
couples age 40-65, many of whom have col-
lege-age children, has increased by 50
Nancy Freilicher, a Ph.D. candidate in
clinical psychology and an advanced psy-
chotherapy intern at the clinic, said she has
found that students adjust easier when
both parents want the divorce. However, if
the divorce is one-sided, students may feel
torn to support the injured party, she said.
Group organizers said they wanted to
limit the group to women to provide a
comfortable atmosphere for open discus-
"We are limiting the group to women
at this time because we think that students
may feel more comfortable discussing
some of the issues in a single-sex group,"
Male and co-ed groups may be possible
in the future as the program expands,
Both Freilicher and co-organizer Marci
Gittleman, Ph.D. candidate in clinical psy-
chology andadvanced psychotherapy intern
at the Clinic said they are prepared to dis-
cuss many different topics including issues
concerning intimate sexuality, but plan to
rely on the group to lead the discussion.
"The discussions will enable students
to identify with other students experienc-
ing similar situations. A student whose
parents have divorced six months ago is in
a different position than a student whose
parents have divorced a year ago,"
Freilicher said. "We hope students will
learn different methods of coping from
each other," she added.
"The psychological trauma of divorce
can often affect a student's schoolwork
and social life. The discussions are meant
to help students re-focus," Freilicher said.
Members of the group are required to
pledge strict confidentiality outside of the

fessor Nicholas Delbanco presented 12
University students the Avery and Jule
Hopwood Awards in Creative Writing for
Underclassmen last week.
Each winner received a monetary
award ranging from $200 to $350. The
money was established by University
alumnus Avery Hopwood as a bequest in
his will. Judges, who were chosen from the
University staff, reviewed the works of 79

RC sophomore Rudy Fischmann said
winning the Hopwood Award is a tremen-

Hopwood Award winners were not
