Parenting after separation: Position statement

This statement outlines the APS position about parenting after separation and divorce.

Separation and divorce are relatively common in Australian society today, but still represent major life stressors for the individuals involved. The impact of separation or divorce on parents and their children is far-reaching and complex. It impacts on all aspects of family life and the process of adjustment is important for individuals, their families and our society.

The APS takes this issue seriously and sees it as a significant public health issue. Psychologists can contribute practice skills and knowledge of prevention approaches to separation, mediation of conflict, and social and practical supports for families in transition.
