    Hello,

    I'm trying to write my essay for the Access course I'm currently taking, and I'm just wondering whether there is a specific term used to refer to instances where primary socialisation i.e. family may be disrupted or changed? For example, if you are born into a nuclear family or "cereal packet" family, and are raised for several years within this environment, but then one of your parents die or they decide to get a divorce, is there a specific term for this? As there is a complete shift in what you associate with a family.

    Thanks!

    Not sure if there's a specific word for it but it's (parental divorce) regarded by many as a trigger for genuine trauma.

    There's a *psychological* term called Privation/Deprivation. I think privation means you are separated from your primary caregiver at a young age, through death or imprisonment or other. If there's no specific words, you could shoehorn that word in.
