Easing the plight of the divorcing and the divorced requires the efforts of a broad range of professional disciplines. It is not my purpose here to cover in detail the various ways in which different professionals can contribute to this goal. Rather, I will focus on certain specific changes which, if implemented, could prevent and/or lessen some of the psychological traumas attendant to divorce. Some of these changes are already being instituted but are mentioned here because they warrant more widespread appreciation and utilization. Others, to the best of my knowledge, have not yet been made and may never be. My hope is that this presentation will play some small role in bringing about these changes.
