The Use of Online Technology and Parent-Child Contact: What do we really know?

Posted By Administration, April 18, 2017

Part 1

Dr. Birnbaum invites all family lawyers, mediators and mental health professionals to complete a survey on the use of smart technology for increasing parent- child contact.  Despite the increased use of online communication forums, we know little about how different professional groups use technology, what kinds of online resources are referred to on topics related to separation and divorce, and the potential risk and safety considerations while using these technologies as a method of facilitating contact between children and parents after separation and divorce.

The survey (link is attached below) will take no more than 10 minutes of your time.  Results will be posted when the study is completed.  For further information please contact: rbirnbau@uwo.ca

Survey link: https://uwo.eu.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_6xvMdROtyiu848l

Part 2

The second part, is interviewing parents for a 20-minute telephone interview about their views and experiences with any form of online technology to as a means of a parent-child relationship post separation to learn more about the strengths and challenges with using this type of online technology post separation.  I am requesting lawyers to have their adult/child clients contact me.  

We know very little in the research about what parents and children have to say about it and whether in fact it is helpful or not to the ongoing parent-child relationship.

Any parent can reach me at:  rbirnbau@uwo.ca  Or call toll free at: 1-800-265-4406 ext. 4431 any time.
