Gain new understanding of the role that the children of divorce play within their own family systems. Unlike most other literature on the subject, Children of Divorce studies—both empirically and clinically—the role of the children within the dysfunctional pattern of the dissolving family system. The unique and insightful perspectives in this volume equip practitioners and clinicians with the skills to help children cope with the pain and the adjustments they experience during and after a divorce. Experts in the marriage and family field explore the developmental, structural, and interactional issues for the benefit of all professionals seeking to more effectively understand and treat the children who are so adversely affected by divorce.
