Working with men and fathers in families
There is now consistent research evidence to show that fathers can play an important and positive role in children’s development. Yet support services have often struggled to effectively engage with fathers and father figures. A lack of engagement can also mean the risks posed by men are not assessed and dealt with effectively.
This course will explore, through presentations, discussions and case studies:
- The context and importance of working with men/fathers in families
- Practice dilemmas workers face when working with men in families
- Engaging with father figures; men’s experiences of services
- Understanding and communicating with men and father figures
- Finding and engaging with men in families (models to guide us)
- The need to assess both strengths and risks of men in families
- How an understanding of attachment theory can support
- Mapping men and father figure relationships in families
- All courses are offered on a Face to Face or Virtual basis.
- Bespoke & Open Training Courses Available.
This cohort saw learners from Local Authorities including Shropshire, Essex, Camden and Nottingham and a range of voluntary sector organisations including PACT (Prison Advice and Care Trust).
We were delighted to be chosen to provide a large-scale training programme encompassing Trauma Informed Practice and Motivational Interviewing across a wide multi agency workforce across Cheshire West and Chester.
This four day course facilitated the learning of 50 professionals from family support back grounds who were introducing a new early help support package within the borough.
As part of our wider family hub development work with Gloucestershire County Council, we worked with the youth services commissioning team to develop and draft a new youth services contract specification.
