Mothers in Transition
The Indiana Commission for Women in cooperation with the IUPUI Office for Women conducted a comprehensive qualitative research project titled Mothers in Transition. This research project was a state-wide community needs assessment focusing on women living the transition into single-motherhood whether that is by divorce, domestic violence, separation, or any other circumstance.
Participants were interviewed or participated in focus groups with the aim of discussing the lived experiences of single-motherhood in three areas of autonomy:
- Economic Development
- Physical Health
- Psychological Wellness
The goal of this research is to gain a better understanding of the lived experiences of women transitioning into single motherhood from divorce, separation, death, or unplanned pregnancy.
