Clark Psychologist Goldberg Releases Book on LGBTQ Divorce
Monday, January 28, 2019
“Despite the inevitable reality that some same-sex couples, including those with kids, do end up separating or divorcing, there is very little research about same-sex divorce experiences and not a lot of guidance for same-sex couples who are going through this. I believe this book will be a valuable resource, not only for students who are pursuing careers in psychology, counseling, law, and LGBTQ and gender studies, but for practitioners and policymakers who are faced with having to rewrite child custody laws and navigate unchartered waters when the individuals who make up these unique unions and unconventional families part ways,” said Goldberg.
The book is the first of its kind to tackle LGBTQ divorce—an underrepresented subject—in an informed, comprehensive manner.
The book is available in hardcover and as an ebook through the publisher, Amazon.com, and other online booksellers.
In “LGBTQ Divorce and Relationship Dissolution” political scientists, social scientists, legal scholars and practitioners examine relationship dissolution and divorce among sexual and gender minorities from many angles, citing unique challenges LGBTQ individuals face in relationships, and highlighting issues that arise (often, but not exclusively in the courtroom) when children, multiple partners, or multiple parents are involved.
The book explores how gender, gender transition, ethnicity, immigration status, economic status, geography and other variables shape the experiences of LGBTQ persons who seek to divorce or separate.
The book provides facts about LGBTQ divorce, offers guidance to same-sex couples considering or embarking on divorce, and incorporates essays by parents and children who have been personally affected by LGBTQ divorce.
