> Pères divorcés et leurs filles : un examen des recherches récentes - Linda Nielsen, paru dans Journal of Divorce ans Remarriage, 2011
After parents' divorce, a father's relationship with his daughter is often far more damaged than his relationship with his son. Why is this? In what ways does the daughter pay an ongoing price for this damagedâ€”or destroyedâ€”relationship with her father? More important still, what can we do to reduce the damage to so many father-daughter relationships after divorce?
> Relation des filles avec leur pères une fois jeunes adultes : examen des recherches récentes - Linda Nielsen, paru dans Marriage & Family Review, 2014
The young adult years raise a number of intriguing questions about the relationship between fathers and daughters. How does the quality of their relationship throughout childhood manifest itself during a daughter's college years? In what specific ways is the â€œwell-fatheredâ€ daughter advantaged compared with daughters who had troubled or distant relationships with their fathers? What aspects of the daughter's college and early adult life are generally more influenced by her relationship with her father than by her relationship with her mother? This review of recent research provides intriguing and occasionally surprising answers to these questions about young adult daughters and their fathers.
> Pères et filles, un cours indispensable lors des études de la famille - Linda Nielsen, paru dans Marriage & Family Review, 2006
Father-daughter relationships should receive more attention in family studies courses. A review of the literature shows that fathers have a lifelong impact on their daughters, yet receive too little attention from educators, mental health and social service workers, and researchers. Especially in families where the parents are unhappily married or divorced, father-daughter relationships need more attention from professionals working with families. By offering a course on Fathers and Daughters similar to the one described in this article, faculty can help students recognize their own biases and misconceptions about fathers, become familiar with recent research and its practical applications in working with fathers and daughters, and often create more meaningful relationships with their own fathers. This college course incorporates a unique variety of teaching techniques: student interviews with their fathers, the completion of more than fifty self-assessment questionnaires, tests that require application of research, critiques of Web sites, and assigned questions that encourage more focused class discussions.
