This completely updated second edition presents an integrated, multidisciplinary account of children′s experiences of divorce from historical, cultural and demographic perspectives. The author highlights children′s resilience, but is sensitive to children′s pain throughout the divorce process and afterwards. In addition he reviews the psychological, social, economic and legal consequences of divorce, and examines how children′s risk is predicted by parental conflict, relationships with both parents, financial strain, custody disputes, and other factors. The author uses his family systems model to integrate research findings into a theoretical whole and to evaluate psychological interventions with divorcing and divorced families.
