Sharing stories about parental divorce
      #654136 - 04/21/10 12:09 AM

Qualitative studies of children who are going through or have gone through divorce suggest that by telling the story of divorce the child can work through the experience and organize their thoughts about the divorce or realize questions they still have unanswered.
I have set up an opportunity for children of divorce of any age to share their experience and benefit research on the topic at the same time.
I am a student at Western Washington University and I am doing research on children of divorce.
I am looking to gather stories from people who are children from divorced families. If you are the child of divorced parents I want to hear from you! or if you know anyone you think would be willing to send in a response pass this on.
if you are interested please watch our YouTube Promotion video
(cut and paste the link below)
and respond by posting a video response or email.

Thank You!

To Whom It May Concern:
My name is Samantha Friedman, an alumna of the University of California at Berkeley and Fordham University, and I am currently a doctoral clinical psychology student at Saybrook University (San Francisco). I am seeking adults between the ages of 20 and 35 who have experienced parental divorce in either childhood or adulthood to assist me in the completion of a study that examines the effects of parental divorce on marital attitudes and intimacy.

If you agree to participate in this study, please click on this link ([censored]://[censored] and complete the survey on The online survey I am conducting is very easy to complete. The whole process is designed to take less than 10 minutes to complete. Participation in this study is completely voluntary and anonymous. You are free to not answer any question, to stop participating at any time for any reason, and to not have your information be part of the data set. All forms will be kept confidential; that is, no one will have knowledge of which questionnaire belongs to you.

The aim of my study is to learn about the psychological impact of parental divorce, particularly how the age at which parental divorce occurs influences attitudes towards marriage and intimacy. It is of particular importance to examine the effects of parental divorce on marital attitudes and levels of intimacy because they are indicators of relationship stability. The ultimate goal of this study is to acquire data that can be used to assist adult children of divorce in understanding the impact of mid- to late-life parental divorce and develop strategies that encourage healthy, lasting marriages.

Please contact me if you would like a summary of my findings when the project is finished. If you have any questions, please contact me at [email protected]

Thank you in advance for your time and assistance. I really appreciate your help and I am sincerely grateful.

Best wishes,

Samantha Friedman
