The psychological wellbeing of primary custodial fathers in Australia

Little is known about the psychological wellbeing of primary custodial fathers. If you are a father who has custody of your children and has dependants under the age of 18 please take part in this research. The current study defines primary custodial fathers as men who have acquired primary custody of their children following separation, divorce or the death of the child/ren’s biological mother. Fathers who have since been in a defacto relationship or have re-married are also included within this definition. The current study will explore variables that might affect the psychological well-being of primary custodial fathers, including traditional masculinity beliefs, skills and self-efficacy, and social support. It is hoped that this research will advance our understanding of the wellbeing of fathers who are primary custodians of their children.

If you are a father who:

  • has custody of your children – (full, majority or shared/50-50)
  • has dependants under the age of 18

…you are invited to participate in this study, which consists of an anonymous online questionnaire. It should only take approximately 10 – 15 minutes and can be completed at a time convenient to you.
