Teen, Mother Volunteers Needed for Research Study

Adolescents and their mothers will be interviewed for a study titled "The Worth of a Father: Learning about the Impact of Father Absence."

Volunteers are needed for a dissertation study titled "The Worth of a Father: Learning about the Impact of Father Absence." Researchers will perform qualitative interviews with adolescents and their mothers with questions focusing on their experience of father absence. Mother and adolescent must both be willing to participate in interview.

In order to participate in the study, the adolescents must:

  • have a father who is non-resident and has little to no contact
  • have a father who is voluntarily not involved, as opposed to being absent due to death
  • be between ages 13-19
  • have been born to parents who were not married at the time of their birth

To participate in this subject, interested subjects should contact Courtney Morgan at cmorga14@slu.edu.
