Coping Mechanisms of Single Parents in Jordan


In 2012, the Information and Research Center - King Hussein Foundation (IRCKHF), in collaboration with the Gender and Social Fund - Canadian International Development Agency, conducted an exploratory study on single parents in Jordan. The study aimed to  investigate problems and coping mechanisms of single parents in Jordan, a topic that lacks research and attention in the region. The research uncovered coping mechanisms that single mothers and fathers adopt when confronted with the challenges of single-parenthood and its associated social, psychological, economic and legal pressures.
