BETTER I Michael Sheridan Licensed Psychologist CHILDREN OF DIVORCE Approximately 35 to 40 percent of the people now reaching their mid-20s have grown up in families in which they experi- enced the divorce of their natural parents and, in many cases, the remarriage of one or both parents. Research is just beginning to uncover the effects of this trend on the psychologi- ca~ health of that generation, While the long-range implications are unclear, this group is significantly more skeptical of the prospects of long-term relationships in general. Personality profiles suggest that children of divorce tend to feel tess se- cure, trust less, delay age of marriage, de- lay having children, and are significantly more interested in personal security than in family security. Children from divorced families seek counseling at a much higher rate than the general population. It has yet to be seen if the trauma of divorce produces mental- health problems different from those faced by previous generations. Call me, I'll give you more information.
