Over the last decade researchers have made great advances in conceptualizing and understanding children’s lives and children’s wellbeing after divorce or separation. However there have been few opportunities for researchers from different disciplines and different countries to meet together. The conference will be a unique opportunity for all concerned to meet face-to-face to share work in progress and to shape the future research agenda. To make further progress on these commitments, The New York Teen Pregnancy Network invites, Youth organizations, Socio-Cultural Organizations, Community Based Organizations, Educators, Scholars, Researchers, Health Organizations, Non-Governmental organizations (NGO'S), Religious organizations, Human Right Organizations & Women Groups to the “International Conference on
Parental Problems: Child Related Issues”
Date: 24th-28th August 2009
Venue: Herencia Hotel
14 Eastrop Way,
RG21 4QD Hampshire, London,
Theme: “International Conference on Parental Problems: Child Issues”
The conference will focus on divorce and family restructuring in relation to children. The major areas will include, but not be restricted to:
* Developmental outcomes for children of divorce/separation;
* Children’s experience of divorce and separation
children’s residential patterns and relationships after divorce (residence and contact/custody and visitation);
* Determinants of residence and contact;
* Child support;
* Family reformation/blended families and stepfamilies
* Children’s involvement in family/legal decision-making
* Legal frameworks
* Methodological issues in researching children and divorce
Throughout the conference we will be seeking to establish:
what do we currently know?
what do we need to know?
how could this be achieved?
The whole meeting is dedicated to research on children and divorce. It is multidisciplinary and multinational with scholars from around the world and from all relevant disciplines. This conference will bring together an almost 300 representatives of NGO's/CBO's and numerous numbers of interested individual participants from all over the world. The conference will be conducted on participatory bases with satellite plenary and simultaneous sessions followed by general and small group discussions.
The conference receives financial support from Bank HSBC Bank London, the United Nations Health Commission and Ford Foundation USA.
