Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
These two new volumes address the practical and emotional issues of divorce. In The Divorce Book, two psychologists, a lawyer, and a relationships expert successfully tackle subjects such as the emotional stages of divorce, the legal issues, the effects of divorce on children, single parenting, sexuality, and remarriage. This is a practical book, with tips on how to set up a budget, find a job, and negotiate parenting agreements. It contains a good range of commonsense advice from various experts but might have benefited from an index for those looking for specific topics. Overall, though, this is a useful, well-formatted book for readers maneuvering a difficult process. Using a workbook format, therapist/ social worker Weyburne offers practical advice on making divorce easier for children. Each chapter includes exercises for dealing with various situations, from the family meeting to tell the kids about the divorce to exercises for building self-esteem. This is particularly effective in reminding parents not to put kids in the middle, not to criticize the other parent in front of the kids, and how to prepare kids for someone new in your life. At a time when most parents are understandably focused on their own feelings, this book will help them do the right thing for their children. Sample charts for visitation schedules and chore assignments are included. Once again, an index is lacking, but this is still another helpful title by an expert in the field. Recommended for public libraries.--Kathy Ingels Helmond, Indianapolis-Marion Cty. P.L. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
