This post is authored by Dr Kris Natalier and Dr Priscilla Dunk West, Flinders University. Priscilla and Kris study how people make sense of intimate and family relationships. This is research that we believe is important, well-conceived and worth participating in.
Do you have a good relationship with your former partner?
We would like to hear about your experiences, to find out what works in building good relationships between separated parents.
We are interested in surveying and interviewing parents – men and women – who are 18 years or older and who have good relationships with their former partners. We are interested in hearing about how you define ‘good relationships’ and how you build and maintain a good relationship with your former partner and other important people in your life: what works, what’s easy, what’s hard?
The study involves a survey and, if you wish two confidential, one-on-one, in-depth interviews: one where you tell us about your relationship with your former partner and one, around four months later, where you tell us if anything has changed. We expect the interviews will last approximately one hour. We can interview you on the phone, by Skype, or if you live in Adelaide, in a place that suits you.
If you are interested in completing the survey, you can find it here.
If you are interested in being interviewed, or hearing more about the study please contact Priscilla [Priscilla.email@example.com 08 8 8201 5288] or Kris firstname.lastname@example.org 08 8201 3391]
