VAFT News – "Attitudes of family court counsellors towards same-sex parents" by E Tauber

This article reports on research which examined how Family Court Counsellors represented gay and lesbian parenting in a sample of 14 contemporary Family Court reports. It looked at how same sex parenting was addressed as well as the extent to which reports reflected research that points in the direction of there being no difference in outcomes for children raised by heterosexual parents and parents in same sex relationships. Current research available on attitudes of social science practitioners and the Family Court’s ambivalent responses to issues of parenting by gay and lesbian individuals were explored.
