Overview

Can the children of broken homes learn to trust promises of commitment?

The repercussions of divorce on children has been hotly debated for years. Divorce and the Next Generation: Perspectives for Young Adults in the New Millennium offers solid, peer-reviewed research into the aftermath of divorce. This valuable volume presents a scientific look at an issue that all too often is discussed in ideological terms.

This sequel to the groundbreaking Divorce and the Next Generation (published in 1993) examines the emotional, relational, and even physiological effects of divorce. It offers helpful tables and figures, thorough literature reviews, and metanalysis as well as original research. The studies analyze such diverse factors as gender, age at divorce, and level of conflict in the marriage. The results may surprise you.

This book takes a close look at the psychological interactions of divorce with many areas of children’s emotional functioning, including:

  • relationship with parents
  • interpersonal relationships
  • attitudes toward intimacy and marriage
  • self-blame and self-esteem
  • gender schematization

    Divorce and the Next Generation, brings together some of the leading researchers in the field. These detailed studies in the lingering aftereffects of divorce will be of interest to psychologists, family therapists, and policymakers.
