Have you ever wondered where to start in working with dads? What in the world you should help them with? This basic resource provides a way to talk with dads about the issues that matter most to helping them become more involved in the lives of their children.

This guide is a valuable resource to aide you in having discussions with dads at any time and in any setting. Organizations who work one-on-one with dads can use this guide to lead discussions and facilitate valuable, structured conversations - especially in home-visiting settings. 

In addition, this guide is extremely helpful to those who make presentations to dads in the community, such as at schools or businesses/workplaces, and for those who already run a group-based fatherhood program or workshop and wish to delve further into certain topics.

Easy to Use Structure
The structure of the guide helps you customize a discussion with dads in any way you want. Use the guide to design lectures, workshops, seminars, events, and other activities for fathers. Cover one or more topics at any depth you like, in any format you like, and within your time constraints. Use the guide to experiment with the topics, format, and discussion length that works best for you/your organization. 

  • Each topic is covered in two to three pages. You will find background information on the topic, which includes several important factors to keep in mind when working with fathers on the topic.
  • The background information is followed by key learning objectives for fathers that you should build into the type of learning format that you decide to use.
  • The topic ends with key questions that fathers should ask themselves on the topic. These key questions are tied to the learning objectives.

Led by NFI President Christopher Brown, an applied anthropologist with more than 20 years experience designing fatherhood programs and resources and studying fatherhood and masculinity cross culturally, our team has identified 17 critical issues over the years that are essential to address when assisting fathers of any race, ethnicity, or socioeconomic background in becoming involved, responsible, and committed dads. The compilation of those issues and how to educate fathers on these issues, is represented in this helpful, budget-friendly guide which can be used in many settings and situations for all types of fathers.
