Participants Needed for Parenting and Law Study

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Emily Kazyak, a professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, is conducting a research project to find out: 1) how same-sex couples raising children make decisions about whether or not to pursue a second-parent adoption or other forms of legal recognition and 2) how parents address their legal statuses in day-to-day interactions.

 

She is hoping to interview parents with a variety of viewpoints and experiences – including parents who have and have not done a second-parent adoption (or other forms of legal recognition). To be eligible, you must be in a same-sex couple and raising at least one child, and live in Iowa, Nebraska, or Missouri. She is hoping to interview parents living in a variety of places - including in rural, urban, and suburban areas. 

 

She is recruiting people for confidential interviews that will last about an hour. Participants will be compensated $15. The Institutional Review Board at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has approved this study. 

 

If you are interested in participating in the study or to find out more about it, please contact Dr. Emily Kazyak at ekazyak2@unl.edu or (402) 937-9057.

I'm still looking for LGBTQ parents in Nebraska, Iowa, and Missouri. 

 

There's a chance I might extend beyond those states for this study. I also plan to do a larger study that includes all of the U.S. If you're interested, feel free to message me or contact me at: ekazyak2@unl.edu.

 

I've also created a Facebook page for the study:
