Understanding Gender Differences in Children's Adjustment to Divorce: Implications for School Counselors
Brown, Joe H.; Portes, Pedro R.
Journal of School Counseling, v4 n7 2006
The present paper discusses some of the current issues confronting practitioners and researchers in understanding gender differences in children's adjustment to divorce. Gender differences in children's developmental adjustment to divorce are influenced by pre and post divorce development processes, parent expectation and children's coping abilities. Current research indicates that boys and girls are affected differentially by divorce with boys experiencing greater maladjustment resulting from divorce related processes. Recommendations are provided for practitioners who work with children of divorce and their families in the home and school. (Contains 1 figure.)
