The Supporting Father Involvement (SFI) Program, also known internationally as Parents as Partners (PasP), is an evidence-based approach to fostering children’s development by increasing father involvement, and by supporting co-parenting among adult parenting partners sharing the care.
The Brazelton Touchpoints Center offers 24 hours of training for teams interested in implementing the SFI program in their organizations.
Participants will learn how to implement this 16-session, parenting group that includes co-led group facilitation, an interactive curriculum, case management, and child care during while parents are meeting for the group. The program is designed to focus on co-parenting partners (e.g., parents, grandparents, same-sex couples, etc.) but it can also be implemented in a father’s group format.
