5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book for Divorcing Parents, October 24, 2011
This review is from: The Intelligent Divorce: Taking Care of Yourself (Paperback)
Dr. Mark Banschick's 2nd Volume "The Intelligent Divorce: Taking Care of Yourself" is another valuable contribution to the self-help literature on the process of separation and divorce. In this book Dr. Banschick continues to demonstrate his expertise and his commitment to the well-being of children and families. All too often, the emotional regression and stress (including financial stress) that naturally takes place during a divorce results in inattention to family members' emotional needs. Rather then frame the problem in black and white terms, we understand that attending to both the children's AND the parents' needs are critically important to pay attention to in this process. All too often, this equation gets lopsided resulting in misplaced focus and potentially damaging behaviors. Powerful psychological defenses are erected during change and trauma that one needs to be aware of in order to preserve the well-being of all family members involved. The natural process of change and the accompanying mourning process can go awry all too easily. Divorce is one of the most significant life stresses one might encounter. Parents have unique needs during this process and "The Intelligent Divorce: Taking Care of Yourself" is a readable, accessible guide which can be of use for both mothers and fathers. Parents' relationships with children and with each other are vulnerable to deterioration during this process but there is much one can do to avoid that - Dr. Banschick includes useful tools, tables and resources to help one with self-care.
