Traumatic Divorce and Separation integrates the conflicting mental health perspectives concerning trauma theory and the study of divorce, in what the author has termed "traumatic divorce" -- that is, divorce complicated by the high-risk factors of domestic violence, mental illness, and/or substance abuse. The text's interdisciplinary discussion examines issues of financial disparities for women following divorce, traumatic symptoms in children and adults, and the legal controversies about the admissibility of psychological theories related to abuse. The author also addresses: domestic violence as a gendered crime against women; the need for a trauma-informed judicial response; and the need for a systemic judicial response that incorporates an understanding of domestic violence and child maltreatment to provide services and protections. The book is an invaluable resource for professionals and academics in social work, forensic psychology, law, and related mental health fields, as well as academics interested in gender based discrimination in the courts.

Dr. Wagner's Love Trauma compassionately explores the mighty divide that opens up when divorce or separation happens. His thorough and patient dissection of that divide allows divorcees to recognize the demons that keep us from getting beyond the divorce, the pitfalls of various post-divorce behaviors, and the procedures we can take to move past the pain. His examination of the divorcee's viewpoint works like magic to make us feel we are not alone and indeed, that many people suffer the same kinds of indignities after divorce. But the examples of those who have got beyond it lift our spirits and make us believe surviving Love Trauma is possible. Chapters include: The Fight-Who is the enemy? Putting on the gloves, The Need to Fight, Fighting the Right Fight. The Furies-dealing with hate, anger, guilt, jealousy, and fear The Victory-knowing you've beat your true enemies From Loneliness to Aloneness-the essential move Wonderment-an ingredient of happiness Finding a Home-dealing with substance and alcohol abuse, workaholism, reclusiveness, and promiscuity

Divorce happens for many reasons, and when there are children involved, the process gets increasingly difficult. Children are often at times caught in the middle of the "war" being waged by divorced parents. This book provides detailed guidelines about the dos and don'ts of co-parenting as divorced parents and the steps to take in ensuring that the children's well-being are always top priority. We will explore three different models of parenting--autonomous, lateral, and co-parent--and advise which of the three is the most desirable. When couples are divorced or divorcing, it is oftentimes hard for them to communicate, so we will provide you with the correct tools to use to communicate effectively for the betterment of the children involved. Hidden within these covers are also detailed parenting strategies and outlines on how to deal with conflicts through the use of proper communication channels and family meetings.

Parent-Child Separation: Psychosocial Effects on Development is an abstracted bibliography dealing with the consequences of parental separation and deprivation on the developing child and adolescent. We were interested in investigating the literature pertaining to the absence of a parent for reasons other than parental death. Main topics included were maternal or paternal absence due to desertion, military duty, imprisonment, parental institutionalization and divorce. Restricted parenting articles were included when they dealt with maternal or paternal inattention, rather than physical abuse. Particular problems with being a single parent were viewed from the perspective of child development. Because of the wealth of literature available in this area it became necessary to exclude topics such as laboratory studies dealing with temporary separation, normative attachment studies, effects of maternal employment, child abuse, child institutionalization and the like. Other related topics will be the subject of forthcoming books. These include the effect of parental death on the child and problems of childhood hospitali zation. In Parent-Child Separation each of the 690 main references have abstracts which were derived from three main sources: Psycho logical Abstracts, author-supplied abstracts and those written by the authors of this book. In compiling this book it became neces sary, because of size limitations, to focus on articles published after 1960. However, several pre-1960 articles and books were im portant from a historical perspective and are included in a separate section marked "Historical References. " These represent important earlier contributions to this vast subject area.
