    Peter Turchi: IMG Writing as Puzzle

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Your ex-spouse is bad-mouthing you to your children, perhaps even trying to turn them against you. If you handle the situation ineffectively, you could lose your children's respect, their affection—even, in extreme cases, contact with them.

Backed by twenty-five years of experience in helping families, Dr. Richard Warshak presents powerful strategies for dealing with everything from tainted parent-child relationships in which children are disrespectful or reluctant to show their affection to disturbances in which children virtually disown an entire side of the family.

Divorce Poison offers advice on how to:

  • Recognize early warning signs of trouble
  • React if your children refuse to see you
  • Respond to rude and hateful behavior
  • Avoid the seven most common errors made by rejected parents

This groundbreaking work gives parents powerful strategies to preserve and rebuild loving relationships with their children and provides legal and mental-health professionals with practical advice to help their clients and ensure the welfare of children.

Synopsis:

“This essential resource and guide offers valuable advice, especially for those times when the going gets tough with your ex.”

—Susan Jeffers, Ph.D., author of Im Okay…Youre a Brat!

A classic work by Dr. Richard A. Warshak, a leading authority in the field, Divorce Poison can help you protect your relationship with your children during a divorce or separation. Revised and updated, with a new introduction and afterword, Dr. Warshaks indispensable guide to preventing and overcoming parental alienation has been called, “a godsend” by Publishers Weekly and “a great book for both parents and professionals” by Henry Biller, Ph.D., author of The Father Factor. A must read in difficult times, Divorce Poison offers powerful strategies for divorcing parents when their children are caught in the emotional crossfire.

Synopsis:

Your ex-spouse is bad-mouthing you to your children, perhaps even trying to turn them against you. If you handle the situation ineffectively, you could lose your children's respect, their affections — even, in extreme cases, contact with them.

The conventional advice is to do nothing, that fighting fire with fire will only result in greater injury to the children. But Dr. Richard Warshak is convinced that this approach only leaves parents feeling helpless. The problems range from tainted parent-child relationships to a disturbance known as parental alienation syndrome, in which children virtually disown one of their parents.

Divorce Poison is the first book that offers specific advice to protect children from the results of their parents' animosity. Dr. Warshak details how to distinguish different types of criticism, how and why parents manipulate their children, how to detect these maneuvers, and how these practices damage children. Most important, he offers parents powerful strategies to preserve and rebuild loving relationships with their children.
