The divorce rate in the United States remains at an all-time high.
Using the textbook, lectures, the Internet, and a minimum of three scholarly sources from the GCU library, research and compare the impact of divorce on preschool, school-age, and adolescent children.
Develop a detailed outline of a research paper in which you consider the socio-emotional response by each age group regarding divorce and custody arrangements.
You are encouraged to use attachment theory in your paper.
Additionally, answer the following questions:
- What steps can be taken to minimize the number of divorces and help children cope more effectively with their parents’ divorce?
- As a professional counselor, how might you provide support for the parties involved?
