Traumatic Divorce and Separation
integrates the conflicting mental health perspectives
concerning trauma theory and the study of divorce, in what the author has termed
"traumatic divorce" -- that is, divorce complicated by the high-risk factors of domestic violence,
mental illness, and/or substance abuse. The text's interdisciplinary discussion examines issues
of financial disparities for women following divorce, traumatic symptoms in children and adults,
and the legal controversies about the admissibility of psychological theories related to abuse.
The author also addresses: domestic violence as a gendered crime against women; the need for a
trauma-informed judicial response; and the need for a systemic judicial response that incorporates
an understanding of domestic violence and child maltreatment to provide services and protections.
The book is an invaluable resource for professionals and academics in social work, forensic psychology,
law, and related mental health fields, as well as academics interested in gender based discrimination in
