Role Diffusion and Role Reversal: Structural Variations in Divorced Families and Children's Functioning.
Johnston, Janet R.
Family Relations, v39 n4 p405-13 Oct 1990
Tested model of family structure and process using 133 children where both divorced parents remained in children's lives about 3 years after separation. Found role diffusion, lack of coparental alliance, parental boundary problems, parent-child rejection associated with reduced social competence and behavioral difficulties (especially in boys and younger children) and somatic symptoms in all children.
