Preserving Family Ties is a timely, interdisciplinary guidebook for pro se parents, attorneys, GAL’s, therapists and family court judges to more fully understand the fundamental social science to craft better child custody orders that are truly in the child’s best interests. Educators, social workers, medical practitioners and psychologists will find a common understanding of life’s complexities and how they can work together to improve child outcomes when parents separate. The text is a hand’s on journey through the science of family change and will be of further value for students in professional human service and related fields. It offers child welfare advocates with opportunities for family court reform and policy makers with guidance for new and improved co-parenting legislation and child protection.
Says Dr. Richard Sauber, author and forensic psychologist, “Dr. Roseman engenders to emphasize the importance of recognizing the multiple threads of variables that appear regardless of orientation such as culture, gender and sexism, heritage, psychopathology, parental intellectual capacity, physical abilities, addictions and various displays of substance abuse disorder and finally psychological states that the parents present.”
