FI Training: Delivering Father-Inclusive Parenting Services
Designed to complement and build on our Fathers and Parenting Interventions: What Works? research briefing, this course will help managers, front-line workers and volunteers fulfil policy requirements to develop and deliver parenting services that work with fathers and mothers.
Mainstream parenting programmes are usually delivered only or mainly to mothers, and their content and delivery are often not sufficiently responsive to fathers’ specific experiences and needs. This course:
• explains the importance of gender-differentiated approaches in parenting support
• assesses the evidence on the design and content of parenting programmes
• explores what the research tells us about strategies for recruiting and retaining fathers, and
• supports participants to develop practical approaches to delivering father-inclusive parenting services.
The course is especially designed to help services fulfil the requirements of the Dad Test. All participants will receive a FREE download of the Fathers and Parenting Interventions: What Works? research briefing (normal cost £10).
One-day course with up to 15 participants and one trainer: £1,400 plus up to £150 trainer expenses
One-day course with up to 25 participants and two trainers: £1,800 plus up to £300 trainer expenses
