Children's Adjustment to Divorce: Theories, Hypotheses, and Empirical Support.
Amato, Paul R.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v55 n1 p23-38 Feb 1993
Compares five perspectives that account for children's adjustment to divorce. Perspectives discussed refer to absence of noncustodial parent, adjustment of custodial parent, interparental conflict, economic hardship, and stressful life changes. Derives hypotheses from each perspective and examines available studies for support. Sees need for model combining insights from all five perspectives to account fully for current research findings.
