RESEARCH ON FAMILIES LIVING WITH CHILDREN FROM A PREVIOUS RELATIONSHIP
This is to invite you to support a small research project on families in which parents from different ethnicities with children of mixed race/heritage have come together from previous relationships.
My name is Yvonne Ayo and I am a researcher and family therapist working at the Tavistock Centre in London. My research project explores how the cultural heritages of an individual of mixed race/ heritage are discussed in their second family when their parent’s partner is from a different ethnic group from their first family.
I would like to interview family members individually who have come together from a previous relationship and been living together for at least three years. The child from a previous relationship should be at least 15 years of age. If there are any children from the current relationship who are at least 10 years of age and the parent/s consider an interview appropriate, I would also be interested in seeking their views.
Each interview will last about an hour and will be recorded. Confidentiality of those individuals who participate will be maintained throughout the project. The interview will be carefully approached and wishes and comments of the families will be respected at all times. They can choose not to answer questions and can withdraw from the research project at any time.
If you know of any family who might be interested or if you would like further information, I am happy to discuss or have an email exchange at any time. Please feel free to contact me on my direct line or my email address as follows:
