In this webinar, Rebecca Parlakian, MA, Ed from Zero to Three will share some of the seminal and emerging research exploring the impact fathers have on their children, and the ways in which fatherhood impacts men as well. Next, Dr. Alan-Michael Graves of the Good Plus Foundation will discuss the critical success factors for powerful and authentic fatherhood engagement at the community level. Finally, participants will explore the systemic obstacles that many fathers face as they work to coparent their children.

Learning objectives for this session are:

  • Explain common barriers preventing fathers from participating in program services on behalf of their child(ren).
  • Describe the ways in which father involvement shapes children’s development and outcomes.
  • Apply recommended practices in father engagement to a plan appropriate for participant’s setting/community.
