Brunswick DSS “Engaging Fathers, Parts 1 and 2 -Session 1, October 9th”

October 9 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm

Free

Engaging Fathers, Part 1:  An Introduction                                                            

Child welfare professionals often find it much easier to engage the youth’s mother and the maternal side of the family. The father may not be involved in the youth’s life at all. Does it matter? The facilitator of this training will motivate participants to examine personal and professional beliefs and practices regarding father involvement. This training is designed to raise awareness about the importance of fathers, and the necessity of father-friendly practices.

 Engaging Fathers, Part 2:  Improving Practice and Policy

The second training in this two-part series builds on the content provided in the first training and is designed to enhance both the participants’ and the agency’s ability to effectively engage fathers. Social workers and other professionals working on behalf of youth may encounter numerous barriers to effective father engagement. This engaging and interactive workshop will examine and address those barriers. Participants are guided through strategically designed exercises to explore methods that encourage a father’s participation.

There will be a 1.5 hour break for lunch.
