- Adult Children of Divorce
- Adult Children of Divorce are those who have experienced the fragmentation of their lives due to the divorce of their parents.
The effects of divorce on children at any age are frequently traumatic.
Children desire to have loving parents who support each other and blame themselves when this is not the case.
Often these effects are glossed over or unaddressed through denial by parents and children alike.
Later in life the effects of parental divorce will make themselves felt by difficulties in trusting the possibility of lasting relationships with others, both in friendships and in intimacy.
