Fatherhood

ID: 4926

What is the role of the modern day father and how do we cultivate a climate of participation and inclusion. Modern day family structure and concept is morphing on a regular basis. As a result of divorce and children born of unwed parents, the definition and role of parents requires purposeful action and clear intent with family. Is the system inherently biased? While children historically have tended to remain primarily with the moms, does a father's involvement really make that much of a difference? And what about the father's who are physically present yet are functional absentees. This training highlights the correlation between positive involvement by fathers in their children's lives and the dynamic structural and systemic elements that impose barriers to healthy involvement. Best strategies to connect and support greater father involvement highlighted.
