Having "been there and done that" divorce, I can say that there are many things that my ex-husband and I could have done better.

This awesome resource book is full of valuable information and sound advice presented in every day language (no psycho-babble).

Format: Paperback
My friend recently purchased Dr. Banschick's book on divorce and keeping your kids first. A lot of people forget to care for their children properly during divorce, and Dr. Banschick aims to rectify that. The book covers everything from communication with your child to your child's bill of rights. Children are the unintentional victims of adults' actions. With this book, my friend really gained a lot of insight into how her divorce was affecting her children, as well as herself. If you know someone who is in the middle of a divorce, or who is struggling from a recent divorce, recommend this book to them- I'm sure it will do a lot of good for them and their relationship with their kids.
The book is aimed for divorced adults with children, and there is a lot of information in there. It is coherent and easy to understand. He avoids medical jargon so that his points come across crystal clear.

This book is a must read for all involved in divorce. It is detailed, yet easy to read with practical advice. There is bound to be something in this book where you will say to yourself, "that's my situation".

Dr. Banschick's optomistic approach in Intelligent Divorce is rooted in his sensitive empathy,his creativity in establishing a therapeutic alliance, and his ability to see beneath the symptoms which disguise a child's fears and needs.
I wish Dr. Banschick had been arount seventy years ago when my parnts divorced.

"The Intelligent Divorce" is a smart and intelligent guide for people contemplating or in the midst of a family separation process involving their children. Like the classic "We're Still Family" by Constance Ahrons, Dr. Banschick's book serves as a wise roadmap for this process. Most children can and do thrive even as their family is changing. Though divorce is rarely easy, it does not have to lead to family breakdown, emotional breakdown for parents or psychopathology in children. The message here is that divorce does not itself "destroy" families or children. However, it makes a difference how the parents prioritize their children's needs in the process. Children are not collateral nor property to be negotiated in the marital estate. Nor should children be used to turn one parent against the other. If parents can use their own emotional intelligence the family has a chance to re-emerge from the changes that divorce brings with it. What this book emphasizes is the need to understand the children's "rights" no matter how much of an emotional stretch this may be for the stressed parent. It has been said that no one is at their best during a divorce. Getting support and developing one's own awareness during this painful process goes a long way in ensuring that all members of the family survive intact. Highly recommend!
