About the Book

Based on the Children of Divorce Project, the landmark study of how children, adolescents and their parents cope during the first five years after a family dissolution, Surviving the Breakup revolutionized the way society thought about divorce. Among other things, its findings showed how the adjustment of the child depends more on what happens after the divorce than on conditions in the predivorce family, that the father-child relationship does not diminish in importance regardless of how infrequent their contact becomes and that the child’s anger and yearnings can last for an extraordinarily long time.
