When Gay Parents Divorce helps mental health practitioners navigate the myriad issues related to same-sex divorce. This book covers such wide-ranging topics as: the mechanics of divorce; how to collaborate on child custody; how to help families educate school personnel, pediatricians, and lawyers on the unique structure and culture of same-sex families; how to help families navigate the heteronormative legal system; how to consciously co-parent in blended families; and more. Case examples offer actionable advice to mental health professionals who are working to help solve issues that confront gay families, and "Tips for Practitioners" at the end of each chapter summarize key information and related techniques.
