Summary

The companion to Douglas Darnall's best-selling Divorce Casualties, Beyond Divorce Casualties is a workbook for severely alienated children and their parents. The book describes the how and why of unification therapy, how to prepare for reunification, how to effectively work with attorneys, mediators, parent coordinators and counselors, and even how to say "goodbye" if reunification is not possible. This book also provides many real-life examples of alienating behavior, exercises, and specific instructions for how to change your feelings and behavior. Most important, the book's underlying assumption is that you have the power to change even if you have no power to change the other parent. Book jacket.
