"Robert Emery casts a keen eye on the tangle of findings and opinions regarding children's adaptation to divorce and presents a thoughtful, balanced discussion of what science can tell us about complex social phenomenon." --Contemporary Psychology This is an authoritative, research-based book on children and divorce. Completely updated with the most recent findings from psychology, sociology, economics, and the law, this second edition presents an integrated, multidisciplinary account of children's experience of divorce, including historical, cultural, and detailed demographic perspectives. The author highlights children's resilience, yet is sensitive to children's pain throughout the divorce process and beyond. Robert E. Emery examines how children's risk or resilience is predicted by interparental conflict, relationships with both parents, financial strain, legal/physical custody, and other factors. The author uses his family systems model to integrate research findings into a theoretical whole and to evaluate psychological interventions with divorcing and divorced families. Emery concludes with an incisive discussion of divorce law and policy, including a review of trends for the next decade of legal reform. First Edition was the recipient of Choice Magazine's 1989 Outstanding Academic Book Award.
