WEBINAR: From “Second Shift” to “First Shift”: Supporting Fathers as Central to Family Life

This webinar will focus on institutional, practitioner, and family changes that must occur to make room for fathers in the “first shift” of family life. It will showcase a user-friendly tool from the Supporting Father Involvement (SFI) program that can help organizations assess their “father friendliness.” Agency and program changes that increase fathers’ inclusion in family life will be shared. The presenters also will highlight fathers’ contributions to family life in over-burdened, under-resourced communities, which often go unrecognized.

This webinar is the third in a three-part series that will explore how early childhood programs, home visitors, health and mental health providers, and community agencies can increase their effectiveness in supporting father engagement and co-parenting. It will examine and share strategies, tools, and outcomes from the SFI Program, an evidence-based research and intervention program designed for families that are culturally and economically diverse.

The webinar will be one hour, and offer live Spanish translation for interested participants.
