The combined psychological and economic impact of divorce on children and adolescents is often severe and long-lasting. Despite rising public concern, community response has been halting and sporadic. Religious and educational institutions, social agencies, and the court system offer few programs or services. Even fewer draw on recent research findings to provide support and guidance to families confronting separation, divorce, and remarriage. Societal institutions and continuing community interest and support are needed to strengthen marriage, to improve parent-child relationships, and to alleviate the plight of divorced families.
