Father involvement is increasing. We are seeing more dads involved in family life in more ways than ever. However, many dads find themselves in situations that have a negative impact on their ability to be the dads their children need. We can easily assume these dads don’t know how to be a “good” dad or don’t care about being a “good” dad.
These are the dads who need our attention.
It is time we gave them what they needed.
The 2nd Canadian National Fatherhood Conference will do just that. It is bringing together workers, clinicians, practitioners, managers, and researchers from across Canada to present and share their work with fathers. In particular, this year’s focus will encourage discussions about fathers at risk:
Domestic Violence issues, and more.
Get ready to be connected, informed, and mobilized in your work with fathers at risk.
