IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE CHILD
A Manual for Divorcing Parents
Nadir Baksh and Laurie Murphy

This book will help parents save their children unnecessary anguish throughout the divorce process. Written by a licensed clinical psychologist, and a nurse and counselor, the authors have a private practice with families, and also work as court-appointed evaluators in child-custody disputes.

Their advice and direction is eminently practical—detailing what adults can expect from a custody battle; what they will encounter in themselves and in their children (emotionally, physically, mentally) during divorce; advising how parents can make sense out of children’s questions; offering guidance in making decisions for themselves and their kids; and explaining the ultimate importance of putting the child’s needs first.

Topics covered include: the stress and fear that children take on; the need for extra vigilance and care toward children during times of adult transition; softening or preventing the custody “battle”; what to expect when you are divorcing; the hidden needs of children; and dealing with an uncooperative spouse. Includes numerous case studies plus a bibliography and list of referral services.
