A joint seminar between Centre for Research on Families and Relationships and our Childhood & Youth Studies Research Group
Speaker: Dr Sue Kay-Flowers, Senior Lecturer, Liverpool John Moores University
Abstract: Over time, most children experiencing their parents’ separation adjust to the changes it brings. The extent to which they ‘accommodate’ these changes is influenced by many factors. Through analysis of young adults’ retrospective accounts, experiences encouraging a higher ‘accommodation’ of parental separation were identified.
This seminar will outline research tools created with young people to give voice to young adults’ experiences.
Date/Time: Tuesday 5 November 2019 / 12 noon - 1pm
Venue: Charteris Land (Room 5.02), Moray House School of Education and Sport
