Whether children experience expected emotional and/or psychological problems or are more adversely affected, the help of a trained child therapist may be important. The need for outside help may be dictated by observation of how the children’s behaviors and moods change, the level of conflict between the parents, and the capacity of parents to provide the support children may need.
When therapy is advisable, a number of issues may present themselves. One key issue is whether both parents support treatment and can they agree on the choice of the therapist?
