The Father: Key Protective Factors Against Youth Violence and Child Maltreatment (Workshop 16)
This workshop presents a model Fatherhood Program, which was designed to help biological fathers address the needs of their at-risk and system-involved children. When fathers are present and actively involved with their children, virtually all risk factors are reduced greatly. Program components include recruitment, selection, and treatment of fathers and their abused/neglected children. Presenters offer suggestions regarding evaluation and funding.
