Your ex-spouse is badmouthing you to your children, perhaps even trying to turn them against you. If you handle the situation ineffectively, you could lose your children's respect-or worse, lose contact with them. The conventional advice is to do nothing, but Dr. Richard Warshak is convinced that this approach is useless and only leaves parents feeling helpless. The damage to children can be considerable-particularly when warring parents enlist children as allies in the battle. "Divorce Poison" is the first book that offers specific advice to protect children from the results of their parents' animosity. It details how to distinguish different types of criticism, how and why parents manipulate their children, how to detect these maneuvers, and how these practices damage children. Most important, it offers parents powerful strategies to preserve and rebuild loving relationships with their children.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A godsend to the many divorcees who are bashed by their ex-spouses." -- Publishers Weekly "Divorce Poison is a must read for every parent involved in a hostile divorce." -- Dr. John W. Santrock, professor of psychology, University of Texas at Dallas "With the wisdom and insight of years of professional experience, Dr. Richard A. Warshak shows parents how to avoid the painful repercussions that result when a child becomes the pawn of parental conflicts. If you're divorced and you love your child, read this book!" -- Constance R. Ahrons, Ph.D., senior scholar Council on Contemporary Families, and author of The Good Divorce "An absolute must-read for any parent going through a divorce. Warshak lays bare the evils of parental alienation and gives readers the knowledge they need to defend themselves-and their children-against it." -- Armin Brott, author of The Expentant Father and The Single Father "A breakthrough book... Original, well-written, balanced, and filled with insights, it is perfect for any parent who has been the victim of bad-mouthing." -- Warren Farrell, Ph.D., author of Father and Child Reunion and Why Men Are the Way They Are "Divorce Poison is destined to become a classic. Dr. Warshak's sympathy for mothers, fathers, and relatives struggling to maintain their children's affection is outweighed only by his compassion for the children themselves." -- Michael Gurian, author of The Wonder of Boys "This book is a testament to Dr. Warshak's vast experience, erudition, and deep commitment to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of the various categories of alienated children." -- Richard A. Gardner, M. D., clinical professor of child psychiatry, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, author of The Parental Alienation Syndrome "Offers valuable advice, especially for those times when the going gets tough with your ex. It also helps you understand and heal your own hurts without hurting the children you love." -- Susan Jeffers, Ph.D., author of Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway and I'm Okay ... You're a Brat! "Always painful, divorce can turn lethal when one parent attempts to poison the children against an ex-spouse. In this balanced, compassionate book, Richard Warshak offers vital advice to those caught in the emotional maelstrom of a bitter divorce." -- Mark Pendergrast, author of Victims of Memory
