9780300125931: Divorce: Causes and Consequences (Current Perspectives in Psychology)

This comprehensive book provides a balanced overview of the current research on divorce. The authors examine the scientific evidence to uncover what can be said with certainty about divorce and what remains to be learned about this socially and politically charged issue. Accessible to parents and teachers as well as clinicians and researchers, the volume examines the impact of marital breakup on children, adults, and society.
Alison Clarke-Stewart and Cornelia Brentano synthesize the most up-to-date information on divorce from a variety of disciplinary perspectives with thoughtful analysis of psychological issues. They convey the real-life consequences of divorce with excerpts from autobiographies by young people, and they also include guidelines for social policies that would help to diminish the detrimental effects of divorce.

About the Author:

Alison Clarke-Stewart is professor of psychology and social behavior, University of California–Irvine. Cornelia Brentano is assistant professor of psychology, Chapman University, Orange, California.

Review:

"Four stars for this book. Clarke-Stewart and Brentano do not duck controversial issues, instead offering a balanced treatment of them, with their own carefully-thought-out conclusions. This book will be valuable indeed for parents who are contemplating or undergoing divorce. It is also a much-needed sourcebook for all the professionals who seek to help divorcing families."—Eleanor E. Maccoby, Professor of Psychology (Em.), Stanford University
(Eleanor E. Maccoby)

"This book is the most judicious and impressive review of the literature on marital dissolution that has been written in the past decade. It should be required reading for policy makers, researchers, and anyone who wants to get beyond the glib and the simple to a more complex understanding of the topic of divorce."—Frank F. Furstenberg, professor of sociology, University of Pennsylvania
(Frank F. Furstenberg)

“This comprehensive review of the research on divorce is both well written and exceptionally well researched. Thoroughly covering both adults’ and children’s reactions to divorce, as well as legal and psychological issues, this book makes a unique contribution to the field."—Sharlene Wolchik, professor of psychology, Arizona State University
 
(Sharlene Wolchik)

"Clinicians who wish to . . . gain a better understanding of how divorce evolves will find this book thought-provoking and a good foundation for future reading."—Geoffrey L. Grief, Families in Society: The Journal of Contemporary Social Services (Geoffrey L. Grief Families in Society: The Journal of Contemporary Social Services 2009-02-10)
