Living With Divorce and Family Issues
Divorce in a family is a traumatic event. It affects everyone—the divorcing couple, their in-laws and invariably, their children. In some cases, the children are caught between both parents and their tussles over custody rights. To develop emotionally and mentally, children need both parents. So, what are the implications of divorce on children? How do they express their distress? What are the common behavioural problems that children display? Parents contemplating or going through a divorce also need guidance. Living with Divorce and Family Issues discusses frankly the issues that come with divorce such as dating, re-marrying and step-families. Revised and updated, Living with Divorce and Family Issues is part of a series of handbooks on mental health in children written by mental health professionals from the Child Guidance Clinic.
