Research survey for heterosexual parents of lesbian, gay or bisexual children

Hello, my name is Kristopher Goodrich and I am a doctoral candidate in Syracuse University’s Counseling & Human Services Department. I am currently working on a project for my doctoral degree in which I am exploring the experiences of heterosexual parents of lesbian, gay or bisexual children.

My interest in conducting this research is to investigate the various factors that impact parents’ experiences after their children discloses their identity as lesbian, gay or bisexual. You will be asked to complete an online research packet, which includes demographic information and a number of brief survey instruments. The instruments should take approximately 20-25 minutes to complete. All information you provide on the research survey will be kept confidential and a number of steps have been taken to guarantee your privacy. These specific items will be explained to you in the attached informed consent form.
