Divorce has become a popular topic in both research and the media in North America. Adolescent life following a parental divorce has been widely researched, and generally framed unfavourably for the adolescents. In this article I outline a critical research project exploring adolescents’ lives following a parental divorce or marital separation using a participatory visual methodology. I argue that a visual art-based methodology will be useful in gathering information from adolescents regarding their experiences with parental divorce by encouraging the use of metaphor and representation to express complex thoughts and feelings. This research will contribute the adolescents’ perspectives to the literature base, as well as expand the research literature on visual research methods and methodologies.
