Summary:When parents divorce, children are the biggest losers. This book will give both mental health and legal professionals the expert information they need to help families navigate this grave ordeal and improve the outcome for hurting children. The author provides invaluable, research-based guidance on all stages of divorce cases, beginning with the warning signs of a failing marriage and ending with postdivorce conflict surrounding child custody. Each chapter features a detailed case study that depicts problems common to divorcing families and includes clinical guidelines and decision trees for interventions. Discussions include parental alienation syndrome, parent psychopathology, children's adaptation to chronic parental conflict, the evaluation of sexual abuse allegations, and ethical issues.
