SA Shared Care Families Wanted For Research

University of South Australia | Study open period: August 2013 – February 2014


‘Shared Care’ and Primary Schooling:

What is going on for Children, their Parents and Teachers?

I am a graduate research student at the University of South Australia. I am researching how primary school children living between 2 households (at least 4 nights per fortnight) experience their schooling and how parents and children’s teachers manage and respond to these arrangements.

I would like to interview separated or divorced parents with shared care arrangements, their primary school-aged children and their teachers to share their experiences. The benefits for participants include improved understanding of children’s experiences of living in two households and attending school, an opportunity to discuss issues of concern around this topic and the potential identification of ways to improve children’s experiences.

This project has been approved by the University of South Australia’s Human Research Ethics Committee.

This project has also been approved by the Department of Education and Development. My supervisor, Dr Elspeth McInnes may be contacted on 83024042 if you wish to seek further information about the project.

If you are a parent with a child living in shared care arrangements and you would like to discuss your own and your child’s participation in the study please contact me on the telephone number or email provided.
