Library Journal Review

Herman, a child psychiatrist and specialist in custody suits, provides a child-centered approach to divorce and custody proceedings. Because almost all children experience adverse psychological symptoms during this time, Herman shows parents how to keep their children's best interests continually in mind. He reviews child placement conflicts, suggests alternatives to custody battles, and discusses the events leading up to a final court decision. Whatever the outcome, Herman stresses the importance of expediting legal disputes and resolving animosities in the post-divorce relationship. Using case histories, he takes a critical look at the types of problems that may develop and offers practical advice on how to regain stability and happiness. This book should be required reading for all divorcing parents. It is highly recommended for public libraries.-- Ilse Heid mann Ali, Motlow State Community Coll., Tullahoma, Tenn. (c) Copyright 2010.
