Abstract

Separated and divorced mothers, with median separation times of four and 22 months, respectively, were compared on sense of competence, time perspective, and state‐anxiety. Divorced mothers showed less defensiveness, in that their self‐esteem ratings were more congruent with their self‐efficacy and anxiety ratings. They also showed more positive time perspective, indicating greater optimism and suggesting a process of positive emotional transition. 1990 American Orthopsychiatric Association
