NEW FAMILY PUBLICATIONS GET 'COMPETITION' FROM NEWSLETTER AIMED AT THOSE EXPERIENCING DIVORCE

 SEATTLE, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- While attention seems to be focusing on the growth of new "family-oriented" magazines, another special interest publication has set its sights on those who have found it necessary to take a different path.
 newVisions has made its debut as a quarterly newsletter targeted at those who have experienced divorce. It concentrates on day-to-day tactics and other information designed to help those who have experienced divorce better manage their new life styles.
 According to publisher, Linda Gainer, "Divorce is a reality and everyday, those involved in the process pay bills, raise kids, form new relationships and get on positively with their lives. Our publication focuses on the 'how to's' people are using to deal with their changing roles, and includes information on legal, financial and emotional issues. It is written for the individuals most immediately affected by divorce, along with the grandparents, stepparents and other family members and friends whom divorce touches."
 newVisions places special emphasis on children's issues since 25 percent of all families with children in the United States are headed by a single person (according to the Statistical Abstract of the United States). Recent editions included an article on whether a single-parent's situation can rightfully by called a "broken home" (newVisions concluded that it can't), as well as tips on how to build new relationships with a former spouse's family.
 The current issue also includes tax information regarding alimony payments, advice from a psychologist on reducing guilt from so-called "failed" relationships, and tips on handling a child's visitation schedule.
 Gainer said that her interest in forming newVisions arose out of a growing frustration with the negative emphasis placed on divorce.
 "Divorce is difficult. It's hurtful, but it is a reality for thousands of people. Each of them has had to find ways to make life work afterwards. Certainly, there are magazine articles which cover these subjects, but we found no single publication that focused emphasis on this very critical area. We believe newVisions addresses that need and will be helpful in creating support for those who are affected by divorce and are actively pursuing their own new visions."
 Subscription price for the quarterly publication is $7.80. Issues are available from Inspirations Publishing, P.O. Box 77328, Seattle, WA 98177. Telephone, 206-367-5855.
