Stepfathers needed for research

Filed under: General — JohnPotter @ 4:48 pm Wed 12th March 2008

Hi John,
This person is doing research on step-parenting .

She needs men to take part.

Unfortunately she has nearly all women at present which is not good, as , given the Family Court, most step-parenting is done by men (where they live in the same house). Could you publicise this in some way that we get a vocal male voice and participation?

cheers Warwick Pudney.

I do research in the area of divorce and repartnering/remarriage.

I am currently doing a study of repartnered couples – that is, couples
who have a child or children from a previous relationship living with
them. Couples in stepfamilies face challenges not normally faced by
first-time couples. However, very little research has been done in New
Zealand into couples’ experiences of repartnering.

If you are an adult living in a stepfamily situation and would like to
contribute, you can take part by completing an online survey. I am
hoping to find around 100 adults to complete the survey.

If you email me, I can send you the information sheet and the link for
the online survey, and also answer any questions you have.
