Abstract:

"Since the 1970s, policy makers and advocates for mothers, fathers, and children have attempted to remedy some of the inherent problems of divorce - such as conflict over the children, delegation of decision-making responsibilities, poor communication skills, and lack of knowledge about children experiencing divorce - through state-level legislation for divorcing or divorced families. These policies have taken the forms of mediation, legal presumptions for articular custodial arrangements, divorce education programs for parents, and parenting plans. Mending Broken Families provides a historical overview of these policies and then offers an assessment and review of their effectiveness."--Jacket.
