Children, Feelings and Divorce: Finding the Best Outcome
This book is a distillation of Heather Smith's 25 years experience of working with children whose parents have divorced. A positive approach suggests interventions based on knowledge and understanding can greatly improve the situation for both children and their parents. The reasons why children may survive the divorce of their parents well are discussed and, in a unique chapter written specifically for them, the author addresses children and their concerns about their divorcing parents. In this chapter children of 'successful divorces' give their views about why their divorcing parents got it right for them. The book is a positive approach from an experienced practitioner aimed at improving the outcome of divorce for all concerned. It should be read not only by counsellors and therapists but is also essential reading for anyone with children who are facing divorce.
