Summary

This collection explores the effects of divorce and separation on children. It features three reports commissioned by the Attorney General's Department of Australia. The first report, 'A longitudinal study of school-aged children in high conflict separation', uses data from the Children in Focus longitudinal study of 260 children from families experiencing significant conflict over post-separation parenting arrangements. The report looks at the stability of physical care, the factors leading to successful shared parenting, and developmental outcomes for children. The second report, 'Overnight care patterns and psycho-emotional development in infants and young children', uses data from the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children concerning separated families. It explores the associations between overnight care arrangements and psycho-emotional outcomes for infants and preschool children. A third report links the findings of these two studies.
