DIVORCE is Hard on the Kids

Alan Bradley & Jody Beveridge
* Alan Bradley is a psychologist specialising in children and family issues following marriage breakdowns.

* Jody Beveridge is a barrister specialising in family law.

* Much has been written about divorce but there is nothing to help minimise the trauma to the children left behind.

* This book looks at divorce from the children’s perspective.

* If everybody knew the rules, the children would be less damaged.

* Full of professional psychological advice and anecdotal advice from parents and children.

It’s extraordinary that there is so little information to help parents reduce the pains of divorce for their children.

* This book draws on the questions children ask and the feelings they hide. These are organised as sub-headings under each new topic. The book explains in clear, simple terms how to anticipate problems, avoid unnecessary harm and, of course, what action to take if things have gone wrong.
