BRITO, Leila Maria Torraca de; CARDOSO, Andréia Ribeiro  and  OLIVEIRA, Juliane Dominoni Gomes de. Discussion among divorced parents: working with groups. Psicol. cienc. prof. [online]. 2010, vol.30, n.4, pp. 810-823. ISSN 1414-9893.

The article presents data collected in participatory research through groups of reflections with divorced parents. The investigation had as scope the evaluation of the difficulties towards parenthood after the couple’s separation as well as the possibilities and improvements achieved through the groups of reflection. It is pointed out in this work the life and the complaints of fathers and mothers who participated in both groups referring to their living and social relationships with their children after separation. It is concluded that the traditional division between custodians and no custodial parents brings special difficulties to each one of these categories that may be better comprehended when parents come to groups of discussions on this matter.
