    Reviews & endorsements

    "Authoritative, comprehensive, forward-looking, clinically pertinent...with this book Grych and Fincham have set the high-water mark for scholarly volumes on the interplay between family conflict and child development. The individual chapters, which are unusually strong and compelling to read, make this book essential reading for clinicians, researchers, and family policy specialists--in short, for anyone with a strong commitment to nurturing the development of children." Thomas Bradbury, Department of Psychology, University of California, Los Angeles

    "Grych and Fincham have done a masterful job in bringing together prominent researchers to create a volume that summarizes past and current research and will stimulate future endeavors in elucidating the links between marital confict and child development. Given the task of aggregating this vast set of ideas, they have produced an invaluable resource that sums to one of the most current and comprehensive texts on interparental conflict." Parenting: Science and Practice

    "This book proposes a scholarly exploration of the links between marital and child problems especially pertaining to children's development. I would recommend this book to all clinicians who work with interparental conflicts in the lives of children under their care." The Canadian Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Review, Pratibha Reebye MBBS
