This Campus Workshop will discuss the ethical, legal and psychological challenges that arise when families are created in which more than two people take up a parental role. Topics that will be covered include:
- the legal possibilities and hurdles of having more than 2 parents
- psychological differences between genetic and non-genetic parenthood
- the wellbeing of children in polyamorous families- co-parenting arrangements in same-sex couples
- the patient’s perspective on and experience with poly-parenthood arrangements
- a look into the future: multiparenting for sustainability and multiple genetic parents
Psychologists, ethicists, lawyers and legal scholars, patient representatives, clinicians working in assisted reproduction, policy makers
The topic of this course is a relatively recent and novel development, in which there currently exists only a limited amount of empirical research which is considered controversial. This course will not only inform, but also explicitly aim for critical reflection.
The official language of the course is English.
