Working with Custodial Grandparents

by Bert, Jr. Hayslip

Working with Custodial Grandparents Synopsis

Moving beyond simply describing the differences between custodial and noncustodial grandparents, this volume places helping efforts with grandparents in theoretical, empirical, and pragmatic contexts. Stressing the importance of theoretically grounded interventions and empirically-based studies for the design, implementation, and funding of programs, the chapters define an action-oriented approach toward changing the lives of grandparents and their grandchildren. The topics include: in what ways do support groups help; caring for children with developmental disabilities; predictors of psychological distress; building parenting skills; and strategies for solving everyday problems, among others.
