A theoretical model explaining co-parental relationship and parental functioning after divorce by means of two personality traits: narcissism and self-differentiation was proposed and empirically tested on 100 divorced Israeli parents (50 former couples). A LISREL analysis of the data (separate for men and women) led to some modification in the model, suggesting direct and indirect effects. The findings are interpreted in the discussion and their clinical and research implications are considered.
