At last, the confused and hurt father, experiencing the loss of marriage, family life, and routine contact with his children, can find calm and loving guidance in how to live in changed circumstances. So much written about divorce and single parenting is addressed to women. Until recently, a caring father has had relatively little guidance for his conduct in the painful process of dismantling a traditional family and establishing a new basis for relating to his former spouse and his children. Gerald S. Mayer, in The Divorced Dad Dilemma, provides this critically needed guidance in an authoratative, gentle, and thorough manner.

​ This book focuses on the experience of father's lives after a divorce, and how mental health professionals can help them create a healthy transition. Through the use of case examples critical issues are highlighted and discussed with supportive empirical findings and clinical insights. Traditionally, the marital legal sessions as well as the ultimate marriage settlement focus on the issues confronted by the ex-wife and mother and on the custody and visitation plan for the children. This is actually supported by law in some places. This can remove the father from important qualitative issues such as what it is like to have children in two households, relationships with two sets of grandparents, where holidays will be spent, fair rotations of responsibility and how continuing parental discord can be resolved. The issues examined in this volume are relevant to a range of professionals who deal with divorcing couples from psychologists and family therapists to legal advisors and judges.​

This full coloured, illustrated story book tells of the roller coaster emotional journeys of Royce, aged ten, and his nine-year-old sister, Deloyce, whose parents announce plans to separate and eventually divorce. The story addresses a number of issues in an amusing, age appropriate, reassuring style. The main focus is on the reactions of the young people to their parents’ decision and the period of time leading up to the day when, by parental agreement, Dad leaves the family home and moves into an apartment. The children call this day of departure M-day (Move day). Readers are assisted by a friendly guide called Cody who invents a clever word and provides information within each of the chapters plus a mind tingling brainteaser at the end of the story. Deloyce and Royce fear M-day and readers accompany them as they try to cope with unexpected thoughts, feelings, and experiences plus some weird but funny adventures.
