Developed by Dr. Bruce Fisher, The Fisher Divorce Adjustment Scale (FDAS) consists of 100 statements reflecting common feelings and attitudes of people who have ended or are ending a love relationship. The results reveal the strong and weak areas of adjusting to the loss of the relationship and are profiled in these seven aspects;

  • Self-worth
  • Emotional disentanglement
  • Dissipation of anger
  • Level of grief
  • Openness to social intimacy
  • Social self-worth
  • Adjusting to the end of the relationship

In the Rebuilding Seminar, the questions are answered at the beginning and then again at end of the program. By the end of the course, participants typically show marked improvement in nearly every aspect measured by the Fisher Divorce Adjustment Scale.

Here are some sample questions. The responses to choose from are:

1) almost always, 2) usually, 3) sometimes, 4) seldom, 5) almost never
