|Title:||Divorce research: Lessons for family therapists||Authors:||Carr, Alan||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/6430||Date:||2001||Abstract:||In this synthesis of the international literature on psychological aspects of divorce, the causes and consequences of divorce for parents and children are summarized. The majority of parents and children show no major long-term adverse psychological consequences to divorce. Personal and contextual factors that mediate the impact of divorce on parents and children and that may account of the negative impact of divorce on a minority of parents and children are also examined. The impact of mediation and of post-divorce therapy are described and priorities for research and service development identified.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Edwin Mellen Press||Keywords:||Divorce; Family therapy||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Is part of:||Carr, A.
