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.
