Dealing with Loss is simply excellent. Too often
we think that divorce is about anger and bitterness. We forget that

Impasses of Divorce: The Dynamics and Resolution of Family Conflict
and In the Name of the Child: A Developmental Approach to Understanding
and Helping Children of Conflicted and Violent Divorce

wisdom on how to help yourself and your children through the challenges
of a family loss. I highly recommend it to parents, step parents, and
grand-parents who are in the position of supporting children through
change and loss.
