Familylinks Presents: 

Engaging Fathers: The Importance of Dads and Why We Need Them

More than 20 million children live in a home without the physical presence of a father. If it were classified as a health crisis, fatherlessness would be an epidemic worthy of attention as a national emergency. This training will focus on a service system that will provide a framework for addressing this very real crisis that is impacting our children, families and communities. Participants will gain an understanding of the direct effects that the following systems are having on our families and fathers: 1) Mental Health since men typically do not seek treatment. 2) Legal System and biases that men can experience i.e. race, gender. 3) Workforce Development especially men with criminal backgrounds. 4) Housing barriers. 5) Child Welfare Systems are a big concern. Challenges and barriers faced by fathers, and the process of engagement that will help to address these issues will also be examined. A framework, which includes principles of father engagement that have shown positive outcomes, will be presented.
