Product Description

Book Description

Janet Johnston and Vivienne Roseby bring their extensive research and clinical experience to a detailed examination of the immediate and longer-term effects of high-conflict divorce on children. The authors trace the developmental problems affecting very young children through adolescence, with special attention to the impact of family violence and the dynamics of parental alienation. They describe the clinical interventions that have proven to be most effective in their work with individual families and groups along with principles for custody decision making and service programs in the courts and communities that help manage the conflict. In the Name of the Child will be an invaluable asset to clinical social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, mediators, family law attorneys, judges, and teachers who work with children of divorce.

First Sentence
Just as a marriage can be deemed as more or less successful or as having failed, so can a divorce be seen as being more or less successful or as having failed to accomplish its purpose. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is a classic Nov. 21 1998

Format:Hardcover
Janet Johnston is one of the most careful and thoughtful researchers in the field of family law. "In the Name of the Child" is a compilation of all of her collected wisdom dealing with high conflict and other families who find themselves in the courts. The best kernel for me, however, was her description of the "ideal family court", a model closely tracking with the one we have developed for the state of Oregon.
