Description

Robert Emery applies his 25 years experience as a researcher therapist and mediator to offer parents a new road map to divorce. Dr. Emery shows how our powerful emotions and the way we handle them shape how we divorce - and whether our children suffer or thrive in the long run. His message is hopeful yet realistic - divorce is invariably painful but parents can help promote their children's resilience. With compassion and authority Dr. Emery explains: * Why it is so hard to really make divorce work * How anger and fighting can keep people from really separating * Why legal matters should be one of the last tasks * Why parental love - and limit setting - can be the best 'therapy' for kids * How to talk to children create workable parenting schedules and more
