When Parents Divorce: A Protocol Suggestion in Cases of Adversial Divorces
Sara, Bernardelli
Online Submission, Psychology Research v1 n5 p303-317 Nov 2011
The experience of divorce influences life of children involved and there could be short- and long- term consequences (Dykeman, 2003). Researches showed that divorce can negatively change quality of attachment between children and parents, especially if maternal depression and high percentage of chronic conflict between parents attend (Fabbro, Bernardelli, Castagna, Domenichini, Gamba, & Zanolla, 2009); negative effects could concern psychological well-being and school performance of children (Dykeman, 2003). Parents have difficulties to consider that when marital relationship is broken, they will always be parents: This process must be handled. The aim of the present work was to create a protocol for divorced families, where interventions for both parents and children are suggested. The main idea is that there are different phases in the divorce experience and each phase is characterized by specific interventions. The problem is to help families to find new ways to live "together" to grow children, where "to find" means "to create". It is important to clarify reasons, stop conflicts and pass ambivalences (Vegetti Finzi, 2005). (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.)
