The study examines the effect of the Post-divorce Psychological Support Program (PDPSP) on the adjustment levels of divorced individuals. The program developed by the researchers was conducted with a group of 8 divorced women. This research was designed according to a quasi-experimental method with an unequalized control group model. 55 participants were called to pre-interview, and 16 of them were selected according to the eligibility criteria. The group was divided into two randomly, group A was assigned as experimental, and group B was noted as the control group. The 11-week program (PDPSP) was applied to the experimental group, at the end of the time, the Fisher’s Divorce Adjustment Scale was given to the groups again. The study revealed that PDPSP was found to be effective on the individuals' level of adjustment to divorce. Professionals working with divorced individuals can benefit from this program.
