    Optimal support for children of conflict divorces

    Publication date: 01 January 2015

    Conflict divorces burden children with chronic conflicts between parents, a decreased quality of parenting and impaired communication, a lack of or less supervision, parental psychopathology, a chaotic family life and impaired parent-child relationships.


    Expected revenues for practice, science and education

    The acquired information will initially be used to develop an app that can help children in conflict divorce situations to empower their say in the separation process of their parents. Secondly, the possibility of how this app can support the current range of child-focused intervention programmes will be assessed. Finally, the results of this study are described in a scientific article and the results will be embedded in the curriculum of the School of social work and the School of Education (Teacher Training) of the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences.
