Parent-Child Relations throughout Life

By Karl Pillemer; Kathleen McCartney | Go to book overview

ality (see e.g., Jue, 1987). Based on data presented in this chapter, it is difficult to determine now the full effects of coming out on parent-child relations. Followup of this sample's transition to adulthood provides the opportunity for further examining this process during a subsequent phase of the life course.


ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

The research reported in this chapter was supported by a grant from the Spencer Foundation ("Sexual Orientation and Cultural Competence in Chicago"). Preparation of this manuscript was facilitated by the Clinical Research Training Program in Adolescence, jointly sponsored by Michael Reese Hospital & Medical Center and the University of Chicago, funded by an institutional training grant from the National Institute of Mental Health (5T32 MH14668-14).

Portions of the data in this chapter were presented at the conference, "Parent Child Relations Across the Lifespan," University of New Hampshire, May 1989; and at the annual meetings of the American Sociological Association, San Francisco, August 13, 1989.

We are indebted to members of the Horizons Youth Group who were willing to share their life stories with us, and to parents from the Chicago Chapter of Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG). The authors would also like to express special thanks to Mr. Bruce Koff, Executive Director, Horizons Community Services; Liz Huesemann and the staff of the Youth Group; and to Mike and Vivian Chanon, Gerda Muri, and Nancy Johnson, for all of their help and support in making this study possible. We are particularly grateful to Rachelle Ballmer, for her untiring dedication and assistance in all phases of the conduct of this study.
