In an epoch of rising divorce rates, and increasing concern over the psychological health of children within the family, the author provides a concise yet comprehensive treatment of this topic of obvious social significance. Emery presents findings on separation, divorce, custody relations, divorce settlement and remarriage from both empirical research and clinical domains. He also supplies statistics on divorce and its impact on children.

Avoiding the polemic of extreme views, Marriage, Divorce, and Children's Adjustment will be essential reading for professionals and students in the areas of psychology, social work and counselling; and for anyone who is interested in child development.
