Stepchil­dren needed for psy­chol­ogy study

Central Leader - - News -

Young adults with step­moth­ers are be­ing sought by an Auck­land Uni­ver­sity re­searcher.

Penny Mansell is study­ing the re­la­tion­ships be­tween step­moth­ers and stepchil­dren for a doc­tor­ate in clin­i­cal psy­chol­ogy.

She seeks peo­ple aged be- tween 18 and 25 who lived with their fa­ther and step­mother for a sig­nif­i­cant part of their child­hood.

The vol­un­teers will be in­ter­viewed for one-and-a-half to two hours and their iden­tity will be pro­tected.

Ms Mansell will ask par­tic­i­pants about their re­la­tion­ship with their step­mother and what they found dif­fi­cult as well as help­ful about it. To take part in the study con­tact Ms Mansell on 373-7599 ext 84990 or email pen­ny­mansell@hot­
