Divorce & New Beginnings Written by Genevieve Clapp, PhD, Divorce and New Beginnings is a comprehensive parent’s guide to weathering the storm of divorce and building a rewarding new life for you and your children, whether you remain single or remarry and create a stepfamily. While Dr. Clapp is an expert in her own right, rather than focusing on her own professional experience, she has drawn on the insights gained from countless parents and children studied by family researchers, and on the collective wisdom of the leading professionals in the field. Offering practical guidance on the crucial legal and financial issues and professional advice on how to handle — and often avoid — the problems that frequently arise in divorce, solo parenting, and living in a step-family, Divorce and New Beginnings is your complete nuts-and-bolts guide. It provides checklists that help you to set and realize your goals more efficiently and to monitor your progress. Packed with case studies that illustrate common experiences and effective coping strategies, this practical guide takes you step by step through divorce and its aftermath and offers a firm foundation on which to build successful new beginnings.
