1. Turner, CM. Is shared care indicated or contraindicated following parental separation?.

Degree: 2015, University of Tasmania

There is currently a multitude of research relating to shared care and its effect on a child’s psychosocial wellbeing following parental separation. However, there is no clear consensus in the literature about what custody arrangement is best for the child following parental separation, especially when there is inter-parental conflict. This systematic literature review aimed to provide a synthesis of the current literature surrounding shared care following separation. The review aimed to ascertain when shared care is indicated or contraindicated in families with children under the age of 12, across both conflict and no conflict families. The Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA; Moher, Liberati, Tetzlaff, & Altman, 2009) guidelines were implemented for this systematic literature review, with data being extracted from a total of 24 included studies. Of these studies, 18 indicated that shared care was no worse for children’s wellbeing than sole custody arrangements. Furthermore, it appears that it is not the care arrangement itself that affects child wellbeing, but a number of other positive and negative factors. These factors have been discussed at length with recommendations being provided for practitioners working in psychology, family therapy and family law.

2. Parrish, Lauren Patricia. Family Structure and The Freshmen Year: Influence of Parental Marital Status and Custody Arrangement on First-Year College Adjustment.

Degree: MS, Counseling Psychology, 2012, University of Kansas

The purpose of this study is to examine how first-year college adjustment is impacted by family structure. More specifically, the study aims to determine if the current definition of family structure needs to be revised to account for different custody arrangements when assessing its impact on first-year college adjustment. Traditional first year college students were recruited for participation in this study, 82 freshmen chose to take part. Eligibility was determined based on a prescreening questionnaire that examined age, parental marital status, and current college housing arrangement. The survey contained the Student Adaptation to College Questionnaire, College Adjustment Test, and demographic questions related to campus involvement, division of parental custody, family background, parental contact and academic history. Participants were divided into the "married" group (N=39), the "co-parenting" group (N=21), and the "single parenting" group (N=22) based on their parents' marital status and custody arrangement, if the parents were divorced. Significant differences were found in terms of high school grade point average, as well as grade point average from the first semester of college. Further research is needed to continue assessing the possible revision of the present definition of family structure; larger numbers of participants and more equivalent group sizes will aid in increased statistical power. Advisors/Committee Members: Mikinski, Tamara Coder (advisor), Karpowitz, Dennis H. (advisor), Hensley, Kristen N. (cmtemember).
