    A paradigm-shifting model of parenting children in two homes from an internationally recognized expert. A researcher, therapist, and mediator, Robert Emery, Ph.D., details a new approach to sharing custody with children in two homes. Huge numbers of children are affected by separation, divorce, cohabitation breakups, and childbearing outside of marriage. These children have two homes. But their parents have only one chance to protect their childhood. Building on his 2004 book The Truth About Children and Divorce and a strong evidence base, including his own research, Emery explains that a parenting plan that lasts a lifetime is one that grows and changes along with children’s—and families’—developing needs. Parents can and should work together to renegotiate schedules to best meet the changing needs of children from infancy through young adult life. Divided into chapters that address the specific needs of children as they grow up, Emery: Introduces his Hierarchy of Children’s Needs in DivorceProvides specific advice for successful parenting, starting with infancy and reaching into emerging adulthoodAdvocates for joint custody but notes that children do not count minutes and neither should parentsHighlights that there is only one “side” for parents to take in divorce: the children’s sideHimself the father of five children, one from his first marriage, Emery brings a rare combination of personal and professional insight and guidance for every parent raising a child in two homes.

    Conscious Uncoupling is a breakup or divorce that is characterized by good will, generosity, and respect. And it’s a book for anyone who has ever experienced a bad breakup of any kind—with a girlfriend, boyfriend, friend, boss, employee, husband, or wife—and who wants to try another way. It’s well past time we became more grown-up and less damaging in how we dissolve relationships. Conscious Uncoupling is a tried-and-true, step-by-step process for completing the old relationship while holding out for the possibility of generating a happier and healthier one. Katherine Woodward Thomas teaches listeners how to have difficult conversations with the other person in their relationship, clear away any toxic emotional residue left between them, and train one’s social community to adjust to the new form of the relationship and behave respectfully toward both individuals. Conscious Uncoupling will also provide a cultural perspective on breakups and divorce and will help listeners understand their own experience inside of the larger context of society. And the book will initiate and support this new movement in culture by promoting greater awareness and introducing the critical skills to navigate the end of love in an empowered way. Conscious Uncoupling promises to be a substantial book that will inspire people to begin thinking differently about breakups and divorce in addition to helping them heal their heartbreak.

    From the author of the bestselling Your Baby & Child comes a book full of completely practical, comprehensively researched information and advice on how you can do what is best for your child when you are going through a separation or divorce. Using the latest scientific research in child development, Penelope Leach covers the various effects of divorce on children in five stages of life—infants, toddlers/preschoolers, primary school children, teenagers, college students/young adults—many of whom are far more deeply affected than previously thought. She explains recent studies that overturn many common assumptions and that show, for example, how many standard custody arrangements for very young children are harmful to children’s attachment to their parents and therefore to their brain development. There is evidence to suggest that the practice of having infants and toddlers spend regular overnights with noncustodial parents may be damaging, and the practice of dividing children’s time equally between the parents is seldom best for the children. Leach’s advice is meticulously considered and exhaustive, covering everything from access, custody, and financial and legal considerations to managing separate sets of technology in two houses, and she includes the voices of both parents and children to illustrate her points. She explains why “mutual parenting” is the ideal way to co-parent after a divorce and delineates ways to carry this out. And throughout, she makes clear that, most importantly in any separation or divorce, both parents must put their relationship to their children and responsiveness to their needs ahead of their feelings about each other.

    Author of the bestseller Will I Ever Be Good Enough? Healing the Daughters of Narcissistic Mothers, Dr. Karyl McBride draws on her expertise in treating children and partners damaged by narcissists in this practical new guide to divorce and its aftermath. With more than three decades of experience as a licensed marriage and family therapist, Dr. McBride guides you through the emotional fallout and challenges of being married to and divorcing a narcissist. The court system assumes that both parties in most high-conflict divorces are at fault, but a narcissist can wreak havoc in the divorce process. Dr. McBride shows how to navigate this kind of divorce and how you and your children can heal afterward. Written for those considering or already going through divorce, as well as the professionals working with them, Will I Ever Be Free of You? has three parts: “Recognizing the Problem,” “Breaking Free,” and “Healing from the Debilitating Impact of Narcissistic Relationships.” You begin by learning exactly what narcissism is, how to identify it, and how it affects relationships, then how to begin and carry on through a divorce and make the best decisions for you and your children. Dr. McBride lays out a road map of trauma recovery for the whole family, offering a step-by-step program for recognizing and healing from the particular emotional damage that narcissism causes. This guide offers new therapeutic strategies and practical guidance for protecting yourself and your children through this difficult time.

    It all began as a self-help journey in the purest sense. A serial monogamist for more than two decades, Shapiro wanted to know why the honeymoon phase of his relationships never lasted until the actual honeymoon. Believing that you learn more from failure than from success, he spent the next three years criss­crossing the country with a tape recorder, interviewing hundreds of divorced people, hoping to become so fluent in the errors of Eros that he would be able to avoid them in his own love life—and one day be a better husband. The result is a timely treasure trove of marital wisdom that is as racy as it is revelatory. Shockingly intimate and profoundly personal, this is a page-turning, voyeuristic investigation of modern love and a practical guide for any couple looking to beat the roulette-wheel odds of actually staying together forever.

    Recovering from the betrayal of a partner isn’t easy, but Living and Loving after Betrayal offers potent ways to heal, grow, and love again. Betrayal has many faces, including anger, abuse, deceit, and infidelity. These feel like betrayal because they violate the implicit promise of emotional bonds, that your loved one will care about your well-being and never intentionally hurt you. If you’ve recently left a relationship where you felt betrayed by your partner, you may have difficulty moving on. In fact, it can seem impossible to view the world without the shadow of past betrayal hovering over you. As a result, you may struggle to create meaning in your life and to build new, loving relationships. In Living and Loving after Betrayal, therapist and relationship expert Steven Stosny offers effective tools for healing based on his highly successful CompassionPower program. He founded the CompassionPower agency on the belief that we are more powerful when compassionate than when angry or aggressive, and that true strength comes from relating compassionately to others and remaining true to your deeper values. Using this innovative compassion-empowerment approach, you’ll learn practical strategies for overcoming betrayal-induced trauma and the chronic resentment and depression that result. Most books on betrayal only focus on the obvious issues, such as infidelity, abuse, or sex addiction. This audiobook explores the effects of those kinds of betrayal, as well as less-talked-about types, such as emotional manipulation, dishonesty, deceit, and financial cheating. In addition, the book helps you regain a sense of trust in others so that you can eventually find another compassionate person to share your life with or, if you choose, to rebuild a relationship with your reformed betrayer.

    One of the foremost relationship experts at work today applies the insights of science toward understanding the real meaning of trust in a relationship, revealing how partners can avoid or recover from unfaithfulness and maintain a loving relationship. Dr. John Gottman, the country’s preeminent researcher on marriage, is famous for his Love Lab at the University of Washington in Seattle where he deciphers the mysteries of human relationships through scientific research. His thirty-five years of exploration have earned him numerous awards, including from the National Institute of Mental Health, the American Psychological Association, and the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy. Now Dr. Gottman offers surprising findings and advice on the characteristic that is at the heart of all relationships: trust. Dr. Gottman has developed a formula that precisely calculates any couple’s loyalty level. The results determine a relationship’s likely future, including the potential for one or both partners to stray. What Makes Love Last? shows couples how to bolster their trust level and avoid what Dr. Gottman calls the “Roach Motel for Lovers.” He describes how the outcome of “sliding door moments,” small pivotal points between a couple, can lead either to more emotional connection or to discontent. He suggests a new approach to handling adultery and reveals the varied and unexpected non-sexual ways that couples often betray each other. What Makes Love Last? guides couples through an empirically tested, trust-building program that will help them repair and maintain any long-term, intimate romantic relationship.

In the age where people can get a “no-fault” divorce, believers who claim to live by God’s word cannot dodge the issue: we cannot skip it, run from it, or ignore it.

Combining a high view of marriage, compassion, and biblical authority, Tony Evans looks at the issue from God’s point of view, giving us invaluable insight into divorce and remarriage as he explores real-life fears and questions.

    Gerald Nissenbaum knows everything about his clients—how much is in their bank accounts, what kind of sex their spouses like, if they married for money or power, and who cheated with whom. For the first time in his long career, Nissenbaum gives the lowdown on all the antics he has experienced in dealing with clients who have money to burn. From a C-note hooker-turned-trophy-wife who put her dying husband into a nursing home and drained his bank accounts, to the dad who spent millions to recover the kids his wife kidnapped, this memoir is by turns dark, cathartic, vengeful, and hilarious as it describes the high-end, high-conflict divorces that ruin the lives of everyone involved. Currently commanding $700 per hour, Nissenbaum sees firsthand how neurotic, unrealistic, status-hungry, manipulative, and sex-crazed his multimillion-dollar clients can be. In the style of Anthony Bourdain’s Kitchen Confidential, Nissenbaum and John Sedgwick blow the doors off the dark side of marriage, making this outrageous and compelling memoir a truly guilty pleasure.
