dc.description.abstractThis qualitative, phenomenological study examined community support and caring for oneself as Latter-day Saint (LDS) women navigated the stages of divorce. Six divorced LDS women participated in semi-structured interviews. Data was analyzed through Creswell's modified version of Moustakas' phenomenology and themes were established through meaning units. The following themes emerged: perceptions of failure, where do I belong, support and a lack of support from the overall community. Participants offered additional forms of support needed in this process, and how others can take care of themselves during this time. Participants reported feeling varying levels of support. Implications for divorced LDS women, the LDS church, and clinicians were addressed.en_US
