Parental divorce is a tragedy that traumatizes children. Though attention is often focused on younger children of divorce, teens and young adults face challenges that are in many ways more serious than those of their younger counterparts. This is due to the fact that they have a greater understanding of what has gone on in their family and are more fully aware that things will never be the same. Suggestions for validating grief, shar-ing feelings, maintaining perspective, and rebuilding relationships make this pamphlet a concise and practical resource.
