The Impact of Divorce on Career Development.
Miller, Susan W.; Brincko, Jean; Krichiver, Tami; Swan, Daisy
With over 50 percent of marriages ending in divorce, career counselors need to be aware of the special issues that confront partners who are contemplating, in the throes of, or in the aftermath of a divorce. This chapter explores the unique career issues individuals confront when involved in a divorce including issues related to: 1) divorce laws in California; 2) the supporting partner; 3) the supported partner; 4) the children; and 5) the career counselor as part of a professional team. It is the career counselors' responsibility to consider the unique situation faced by each divorced/divorcing client, and to keep informed about divorce laws and how they impact the career counseling process. Since divorce involves emotional, familial, legal and financial realities that overlap with career issues, the career counselor must remain sensitive to the individual needs of each client and make referrals and work as a team with other professionals when necessary.
