Divorce Aftermath: Empowering Parents...Easing the Pain.
Staley, Wanda L.
The increase in divorce rates following the American adoption of no-fault divorce is correlated with radical changes in the lives of many parents and children. However, the dissolution of a marriage does not mean the end of a family. Family ties are forever, and family therapists can assist by easing the pain of divorce and empowering parents to be proactive and to ensure that their children experience a healthy adaptation to divorce. The authors suggest some research-based strategies and therapeutic techniques to help parents develop self-care and child-care skills. (Contains 21 references.) (Author/GCP)
