WEBINAR: Focus on Father Involvement and Co-parenting: Why It Matters

September 29, 2020 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Autumn Strausbaugh

This webinar will explore the positive impact of fathering and co-parenting on child and family development, and how the Supporting Father Involvement (SFI) model supports fathers as equal partners in parenting. The presenters will introduce SFI’s Five Domain Model and its engagement tool for tapping father involvement and increasing shared parenting responsibilities. Directors from two community agencies serving diverse families will discuss the impact of implementing the SFI program in their communities.

  • Marsha Kline Pruett, PhD, MSL, Maconda Brown O’Connor Professor, Smith College School for Social Work

This webinar is the first 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.
