SRA free evening seminar - Fathers’ parenting before and after separation


Levels of separation and divorce continue to rise, with almost half of children born today likely to experience parental separation. There is great concern about how to help fathers to stay involved in their children’s lives. In this seminar Tina Haux presents her analysis of Millennium Cohort Study data, showing a link between fathers’ parenting before and after separation. This helps to explain post-separation contact patterns, and gives policymakers evidence of the importance of work-life balance policies which encourage fathers to be more involved in the care of their children from an early age.

She is writing a book about the 2nd generation of policy scholars and is involved in the Qstep programme at Kent.

The seminar will be chaired by Caroline Bryson, of Bryson Purdon Social Research. Much of her work focuses on the experience and effect of family separation, as well as the impact of policies and interventions affecting separated families.
