Interparental Conflict and Child Development Theory, Research and Applications by John H. (Marquette University, Wisconsin) Grych

Interparental Conflict and Child Development provides an in-depth analysis of the rapidly expanding body of research on the impact of interparental conflict on children. Emphasizing developmental and family systems perspectives, it investigates a range of important issues, including the processes by which exposure to conflict may lead to child maladjustment, the role of gender and ethnicity in understanding the effects of conflict, the influence of conflict on parent-child, sibling, and peer relations, family violence, and interparental conflict in divorced and step-families. It also addresses the implications of this research for prevention, clinical intervention, and public policy. Each chapter examines relevant conceptual and methodological questions, reviews on pertinent data, and identifies pathways for future research. Thus, the book serves to chart the course for continued investigation into the links between marital and child functioning.


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.
