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.
