Children with LGBT parents: Findings from 40 years of research


Susan Golombok is Professor of Family Research and Director of the Centre for Family Research at the University of Cambridge. Her research examines the impact of new family forms on parenting and child development, specifically lesbian mother families, gay father families (but also families created by assisted reproductive technologies including IVF).

In her lecture she will talk about her research and how it challenges commonly held assumptions that structural aspects of the family, such as the number, gender, sexual orientation, and genetic relatedness of parents, is less important for children's psychological wellbeing than the quality of family relationships.

The lecture is open to all interested.

Number of seats: 100 (no pre-booking).

Lecturer: In addition to numerous academic papers she is the author of Modern Families. Parents and Children in New Family Forms (Cambridge University press, 2015). If you want to learn more about Susan Golombok you will find her homepage at https://www.cfr.cam.ac.uk/directory/SusanGolombok.
