Reviews

This book speaks to the adults who deal with children of divorce – parents, therapists, attorneys, and judges – and gets them all on the same page. The authors believe that parents and professionals should be able to communicate with a common language regarding the children of divorce. This book contains much specific advice on how to achieve basic goals: children should have a good relationship with both parents; divorced parents should find ways to make life as normal as possible for their children; and divorced parents and their children should accept the inevitable losses and disappointments and move on with their lives. Children of Divorce is organized around the use of parenting plans, agreements that are developed through the collaboration of the parents rather than imposed by a judge.

"… a predivorce must-read… Very simply it is the most comprehensive and useful book of its type currently available. Attorneys, mediators and judges have much to learn about how to achieve "The best interests of the child." -- Dr. Bernet and Judge Ash have provided us with a reliable road map to guide us in realizing that goal." -- Tennessee Bar Journal, April 2008

"The authors have produced an excellent book that shows that common sense and focusing on the child's needs are the most important goals of successful child custody negotiations. The book is enjoyable, and the cases make the material easy to understand and remember. The book's greatest strength is the range of case examples discussed. It is an invaluable resource for forensic psychiatrists working with divorced parents and their children. It is also quite helpful for the parents and would certainly be useful for matrimonial lawyers and judges to read and use as a reference." -- The Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law, Volume 36, Number 2, 2008

"Legal professionals, judges and attorneys will find the authors' suggestions innovative and useful. Therapists who treat families affected by divorce will find information that is helpful, if not essential, to practice. This book will also be useful to grandparents, relatives, school personnel, and others who love or work with children whose parents are divorcing." -- Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, 69:7, July 2008

"There may be other books that discuss this topic from this viewpoint, but I, as a forensic child and adolescent psychiatrist have not had the privilege of reading any, especially one so well written and easy to understand. As such, this book constitutes the sole contents of a niche that is invaluable for those parents who are going through a divorce, as well as the therapists, attorneys, and judges who interact with them and their children. In my opinion , this book should be on the bookshelf of every child and adolescent psychiatrist, as well that of family law judges and attorneys." -- Journal of American Academy of Child Adolescent Psychiatry, 47:9, September 2008

"With one-half of all marriages ending in divorce, the lives of millions of children each year are altered dramatically when their parents divorce… Practical advice is offered to guide parents, and the court professionals charged with finding solutions, regarding issues such as shared custody. Divorce mediation, stepfamilies, moving away, living in two homes, parenting education, parental rights and responsibilities, and more." -- Juvenile and Family Court Journal, Winter 2008
