Bringing Fathers In Handbook: How to engage with men for the benefit of everyone in the family
This handbook is designed for staff and volunteers wishing to involve fathers with their service or agency for the benefit of infants and children. It contains templates, sample letters, brochures, cards and instructions for planning and managing father-related events. It provides first-hand accounts from a range of settings: hospitals, home-visiting services, Indigenous services, primary schools etc.
Engaging with fathers in ‘real-life’ situations is not easily learnt from a manual, but including realistic scenarios with instructions for conducting your own staff development makes it possible to get a feel for the task and learn from others’ attempts.
