Nationally recognized expert Robert Emery applies his twenty-five years of experience as a researcher, therapist, and mediator to offer parents a new road map to divorce. Dr. Emery shows how our powerful emotions and the way we handle them shape how we divorce--and whether our children suffer or thrive in the long run. His message is hopeful, yet realistic--divorce is invariably painful, but parents can help promote their children's resilience. With compassion and authority, Dr. Emery explains:

- Why it is so hard to really make divorce work
- How anger and fighting can keep people from really separating
- Why legal matters should be one of the last tasks
- Why parental love--and limit setting--can be the best "therapy" for kids
- How to talk to children, create workable parenting schedules, and more
