Divorce and the School, Hardback Book


This practical and accessible book, first published in 1987, provides examples of ways in which schools can ease children through the stress caused by changes in family structure.

Through case histories the authors illustrate the sorts of problems likely to produce stress for children during divorce.

In the following chapters they deal with the stages of marital breakdown; children's reactions to parental separation related to age; the law and legal processes associated with divorce; the role of the school and its organisation in helping children under stress, and the relevance of curriculum content for such children.

This title will be of interest to teachers and students of education and sociology.
