In the Name of the Child : A Developmental Approach to Understanding and Helping Children of Conflicted and Violent Divorce, Hardback Book

In the Name of the Child : A Developmental Approach to Understanding and Helping Children of Conflicted and Violent Divorce Hardback

Description

The fully updated and revised edition of ""In the Name of the Child"" brings together extensive research and clinical experience to examine the immediate and longer-term effects of high-conflict divorce on children.

The authors trace the developmental problems affecting very young children through adolescence, with special attention paid to the impact of family violence and the dynamics of parental alienation.

Johnston and Roseby present the clinical interventions that have proven to be most effective in their own clinical work with individual families and groups.

Also discussed are principles for custody decision making and service programs in the courts and communities.

This new edition also discusses how defensive strategies and symptoms of distress can consolidate into immutable, longstanding psychopathology.

This title outlines specific policies and procedures that can preempt high-conflict outcomes in divorcing families.

It presents intervention and treatment approaches that are based on the developmental needs of the child.

It proposes principles and criteria for decision-making about custody, visitation, and parenting plans based on individual assessment of the developing child within his or her family.
