Product Description

The legacy of divorce is an omnipresent part of life for many of the men and women interviewed by Berman, a journalist, who served as national president of the Stepfamily Association of America. The interviewees (ages one to 16 when the divorces occurred), in recalling divorces that in some cases caused eviction from their homes or strife with the noncustodial parent, reveal a lingering psychological fallout from this critical childhood event. The book establishes a commonality of concerns and offers guidelines--on "keeping the lines of contact open" between parents and children, on confronting anger, etc.--to mitigate the ongoing effects of divorce on the lives of children. First serial to Cosmopolitan, Self and Family Circle; Psychotherapy Book Club alternate.

More About the Author

How do people cope with challenging relationships? That question has guided my professional life. How do we form adoptive relationships, come together in remarried families, deal with divorce and its aftermath, care for ailing parents, survive schizophrenia, and--in my latest work--grieve and cope with the death of a sister or brother, our lifelong companion.

I feel privileged that so many people have let me into their lives by sharing their stories and coping strategies, and pleased when they tell me I have conveyed them well. The highlight, however, is hearing from readers that my work has touched and helped them.
