Fathers play a central role in their children’s development and child and family service providers can enhance outcomes for children and families by engaging fathers, alongside mothers and other family members, in services. This is the second of two webinars in which we explore the growing evidence base for programming and services that are responsive to the needs of fathers and highlight exemplary programs. In this webinar, we focus on father-inclusive programming. We discuss strategies and techniques for supporting inclusion of fathers that can be applied across a range of services and service delivery models including infant and early childhood mental health, parenting support, healthcare, and education services. Learn more about how father-inclusive programming can support the caring, involved presence of fathers in the lives of children.
