Average Rating
Pub. Date:
Helmreich is a screenwriter, journalist, and musician based in New York City; Marcus is a psychologist and psychoanalyst in New York City who has been a forensic investigator in child custody cases in New York State courts for 20-plus years. They present ten detailed cases of child custody disputes that demonstrate the havoc that such cases wreak on both the couple and the children. Rooted in actual cases, the ten accounts follow people of every kind of ethnic and economic background, and give the reader an inside view of the self-destructive human flaws--selfishness, blindness, and stupidity--that play a significant role in people's downfalls. Each chapter ends with commentary offering concrete practical instructions on what to do and what not to do in similar situations. For parents, judges, lawyers, law guardians, and mediators.
