Anna Bertoni, Silvia Donato, Antonella Morgano, Raffaella Iafrate, Rosa Rosnati
The traditional objective of parenting enrichment programs is to train parents' abilities and specific competences, but less attention is paid to promoting participants' reflection on their parental identity. These programs are generally delivered to groups of parents, though the group is rarely considered a specific tool to promote changes in participants' relational functioning. The Groups for Family Enrichment_Parent version (GFE_P; Iafrate, Donato, & Bertoni, 2010 ; Iafrate & Rosnati, 2007 ) focus on parental identity in addition to parental competences and skills and purposely use the group of parents as an educational tool, adopting a semistructured format...

Jie Yang, Yoosun Chu, Mary Anne Salmon
Background and Objectives: Older lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) adults are more likely to live alone and less likely to have children compared with their heterosexual counterparts. The lack of immediate family system can render older LGBT adults particularly vulnerable to social isolation and its consequences. The current study utilizes social exclusion theory, which asserts that not only material resources but also engagement with and inclusion into the society are necessary for marginalized people to be integrated into the mainstream...
