Program:  Children and the Painful Consequences of Divorce

Elizabeth Marquardt is director of the Center for Marriage and Families at the Institute for American Values in New York City. She is the author of Between Two Worlds: The Inner Lives of Children of Divorce (Crown, 2005 and Three Rivers Press, 2006). Based on the first nationally-representative study of grown children of divorce in the U.S., Marquardt argues that while an amicable divorce is better than a bitter one, even amicable divorces profoundly shape the inner lives of children. The book was reviewed in the Washington Post and featured in Newsweek, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Readerís Digest, and elsewhere.

Marquardt has appeared three times on NBCís Today Show as well as CNNís Anderson Cooper 360 and Talk Back Live, ABCís World News Tonight with Peter Jennings, Foxís OíReilly Factor, CBSís Early Show, PBSís Religion and Ethics Newsweekly, NPRís All Things Considered Weekend Edition and Diane Rehm Show and The Michael Medved Show.

Her writings have been published in the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Philadelphia Inquirer, Boston Globe, Christian Science Monitor, First Things, and Christian Century. She is co-author of a ground-breaking study on college womenís attitudes about sex and dating on campus, titled Hooking Up, Hanging Out, and Hoping for Mr. Right: College Women on Dating and Mating Today, featured widely in the media and by columnists including Maureen Dowd and William Raspberry. Marquardt is also principal investigator of an internationally-released report titled The Revolution in Parenthood: The Emerging Global Clash Between Adult Rights and Childrenís Needs. She has been a blogger at the Family Scholars Blog since 2003.

Marquardt holds an M.Div. and an M.A. in international relations from the University of Chicago and a B.A. in history and womenís studies from Wake Forest University. She has spoken to college audiences and presented at conferences around the country and lives near Chicago with her husband, Jim, a college professor, and their two young children.
