USC seeking parenting study participants

Dads in conflict over the care of their children are encouraged to take part in USC research to help create a better understanding of the support they need as parents.

USC PhD researcher Leanne Francia is conducting a study on the conflict experienced by separated parents and found that 95 percent of respondents to her study so far have been female.

“It is great to have such a strong response, but fathers are an equally important part of the co-parenting picture and their experiences could be very different to that of mothers but we won’t know unless they feel comfortable sharing their experiences,” Ms Francia said.

Study participants can be from heterosexual or same-sex couples in married or de facto relationships, have one or more children and have experienced conflict that has continued more than two years post-separation.

Participants will be invited to a private face-to-face interview with all information kept anonymous.

Prospective participants can contact the researcher at
