Building Positive Social Work Relationships with Men & Fathers

TRAINING FOR PROFESSIONALS

Professionals working with fathers, children, and families in healthcare, mental health, education, and social service settings have an unprecedented opportunity to positively affect the impact fathers have on their children’s lives through father engagement.

Trainings

A well-established body of research confirms that when men are active and positively engaged in their children’s lives early, they play a key role in their child’s growth and development. Despite the enormous benefits of responsible father/father-figure involvement, far too many children still do not get the proven benefits of having a caring dad/adult male in their lives. Healthcare professionals can encourage father involvement through education and active engagement of both parents. We offer various trainings to assist and help community organizations, health care professionals, and government agencies to better serve and understand fathers and father figures.

ENGAGING FATHERS

IN THE COMMUNITY

This training provides social workers, therapists, educators, parent involvement coordinators, early education providers, and child development specialists, with useful concepts and practical skills to better engage, equip, and support dads in staying involved in children’s lives. Participants will review the latest research on how dads impact early brain development, learn practical strategies to better engage dads in family work and take away actionable tools to start or enhance a father- involvement program in any early childhood education or human service setting.

ENGAGING FATHERS

IN SCHOOLS

Research shows that when fathers/father-figures (resident and non-resident alike) are more involved in the school community beyond just attending sporting events – volunteering, attending class, grade, and whole school events, showing up for conferences and getting involved in the parent association – children have been shown to get better grades, go further with their education and actually enjoy school more. Yet, most schools and parent organizations today do little to engage and educate dads beyond sporadically hosting events like the annual “dads and donuts day.” Using examples from different school settings, this training provides key steps and strategies for consistently and meaningfully engaging dads in the parent organization, at grade-levels, and at the whole school community level.

TRAINING FOR

SOCIAL SERVICE PROFESSIONALS

Father's many times are excluded during the mothers birthing process and we at InvolvedDad help Community Health Workers (CHW) with including dad during pre and post-natal care. This is an interactive training for Community Health Workers (CHW) that encourage, support, and equip them with the necessary tools to successfully engage new fathers.
