25. What does Whittaker define as the "first, powerful tool of couplework?"
26. According to Duffel, what are three important skills needed for couplework?
A.  Schedule changes caused by a divorce can be particularly anxiety-provoking for infants.  Even a 6-week-old can sense that his routine has been altered--he no longer sees both parents daily, he's suddenly eating at a different time or sleeping in a new room.
B. 1. In general you do not need to evoke emotions in the way that may have become second nature as an individual worker; 2. The worker's responsibility is to manage the session and help bring unconscious dynamics into consciousness; 3. Learn how to stay neutral between two clients who are both competing for your sympathy and your confirmation that the other is wrong.
C. This failure of recognition may stem from the a number of widespread perceptions, supported by research, that family is less central to men's lives than to women's, even where the woman pursues a career; that men tend to be more "separate" from or less "connected" to their families than women.
D. Children saw their mother and father as part of their family and wanted both parents to participate in various activities together as a family.
E. grandparents on the side of the non-resident parent. Thirty per cent of respondents did not see as much of their grandparents as they would have liked.
F. Age was inversely related to psychological distress, with older participants reporting lower levels of psychological distress.
G. normalizing
H. help should be offered in a manner that circumvents the association men may make between help seeking and weakness or ineptness and, conversely, enhances the man's self-perception of doing right by his family.  The other suggestion is that the offers should be made incrementally, so as to enable the men to retain a sense of control.
I. 1. The parents are polar opposites, even if they do not fight; 2. They must take care of their parents, rather than being taken care of; 3. Loss; and 4. Anger
J. The two focal questions were: 1. How do children recollect their parents' separation? and 2. How do children adjust to their reorganised family and everyday life, with their father and mother living in separate households?
K. 50% of first marriages and 60% of second marriages
L.  The variable with the highest direct effect on father psychological well-being was intimate postdivorce relationship.  Fathers who were involved in intimate relationships were much more likely to report lower levels of psychological distress.
