Caring Dads is a 17-week, empirically-based, manualized group parenting intervention for fathers, outreach to mothers to ensure their safety and freedom from coercion, and ongoing, collaborative case management of fathers with referrers and with other professionals involved with men’s families.
The group component of Caring Dads combines elements of parenting, fathering, battering and child protection practice to enhance the safety and well-being of children. The program emphasizes the need to enhance men’s motivation, promote child-centered fathering, address men’s ability to engage in respectful, non-abusive co-parenting with children’s mothers, and help men recognize that children’s experience of trauma will impact the rate of possible change.
