Description

Fatherhood Engagement and Social Connections
Course Description This training will have a direct impact on the importance of engagement with fathers and father figures. We are trying to change the practice from being “Mother Focused” into the “Full Family Engagement Model ’, by providing the importance of fatherhood engagement. It is in our hopes that our training will provide information and education and try to eliminate any personal and professional barriers that interfere with father involvement which could ultimately results in benefits and increased success of having fathers, father figures, and paternal relatives involved, which correlates directly to case decision-making practices. This training will also be impactful for fathers and father figures as there will be breakout sessions to provide information on co-parent, engaging mothers as gatekeepers, legal rights on child support and paternity, young fatherhood parenting, and empowering fathers.
Learning Objectives
  • Explore Internal (personal) and External (societal) views of the importance of fatherhood
