Reconciling a house divided

Karl Pillemer

Little research has been conducted on understanding estrangement and reconciliation in families. Karl Pillemer's forthcoming book, Fault Lines:  Fractured Families and How to Mend Them, fills this void and is based on 10 years of his research from the Cornell Family Reconciliation Project.

Recently, Dr. Pillemer, Hazel E. Reed Professor of Human Development, wrote an article, A Key to Harry and Meghan's Estrangement, for Psychology Today citing the topical case of the British royal family. Watch his interview on the University of the District of Columbia's program, Family Matters, for more context about estrangement in families and an overview of his book.
