Participants Needed for Divorce and Custody Dispute Study

Dr. Julie Ancis, a professor of Counseling Psychology at Georgia State University, is studying women’s experiences with divorce and custody disputes. The purpose of this research is to gain an understanding of women’s experiences within the legal system. Individual interviews are being conducted with participants, and will cover topics such as interactions with attorneys, judges, and guardian ad litems; coping; and parenting issues. Interviews are confidential and tend to last between 1 ½ to 2 1/2 hours. With the knowledge gained through this study, we would like to educate those in the court systems and health professionals about the unique challenges that women may face in divorce and custody disputes. We may pursue a study about men’s experiences at a future date. Thank you for your consideration! Dr. Julie Ancis can be contacted at cpsjra@langate.gsu.edu
