The Men and Parenting Pathways study follows the divergent paths men take throughout 20's and 30's, including opting to not have children. Whilst some men cannot have children, others actively choose to live a childfree life. A recent study by a Deakin Doctorate of Clinical Psychology student, Imogene Smith, is a qualitative exploration of this decision-making process among men.
