Temple University Evaluation Report:
Pilot Study of a Program to Increase Mothers’ Understanding of Dads

Click here to download the Temple University Study.

Understanding Dad™ is intended to assist mothers to be more knowledgeable, aware, confident, and skillful at engaging in coparenting relationships with their child’s father. This pilot study showed participation of a small group of mothers in the program was associated with improved knowledge, attitudes, and self-efficacy, although the lack of a control group means that the impact of the intervention cannot be determined. The findings are also consistent with the idea that coparenting interventions may be effective when only one parent, and not both parents, attend the program.

A version of this evaluation report was accepted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal: Fagan, J., Cherson, M., Brown, C., & Vecere, E. (2015). Pilot program to increase mother’s understanding of dads. Family Process. doi: 10.1111/famp.12137.
