When Partners Become Parents: The Big Life Change for Couples

By Carolyn Pape Cowan; Philip A. Cowan | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

A STUDY AS LONG AND COMPLEX as the Becoming a Family Project can be accomplished only with extremely dedicated and loyal colleagues, and we have had the good fortune to work with many. First, we pay tribute to Trudie Heming, who served as data manager for the entire ten years of the study. In addition to her exceptional ability to keep us and the data on track, Trudie has made invaluable contributions to our thinking about statistical analysis and our conceptualization of the project's direction.

The data set for a longitudinal study is the backbone of the enterprise. We are indebted to Dena Cowan, who entered a major portion of the data into the computer and conducted some of the analyses with patience and a keen eye for detail. Others contributed their time and skill to the painstaking work of entering data as each follow-up of the families was completed: Barbara Epperson, Beth Schoenberger, and Karen Whitmer. Marc Schulz also conducted some of the recent statistical analyses.

For their early collaboration, support, and friendship, we give special thanks to John and Lynne Coie. Together, the four of us developed the initial interviews and questionnaires, interviewed couples in a dozen obstetrical practices, and led the first couples group in the pilot study. During the next five years, we had the good fortune to work with three other wonderful staff couples. Harriet Curtis-Boles and Abner Boles III, and Ellen Garrett and Bill,
