Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Fathering gay sons: Examining conceptual and empirical perspectives
by Horn, Angela, Ph.D., Indiana University, 2015, 95; 3716699
Abstract (Summary)

This dissertation utilizes a 2-in-1 format—combining two manuscripts within one dissertation. The first chapter is a conceptual manuscript in which I propose a framework for clinicians to utilize when working with heterosexual fathers of gay sons. This was recently published in the peer-reviewed journal, Professional Psychology: Research and Practice (Horn & Wong, 2014). The second chapter, an empirical manuscript, qualitatively explores the relationships between gay sons and their heterosexual fathers through fathers’ eyes. Upon completion of the dissertation defense, this manuscript will also be submitted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal.
