Learn How to Help New Dads Thrive During May 6 Webinar
Looking to learn how to engage fathers in child and family matters, link them to services, and provide father-specific support? Then this is for you!
The Father’s Feelings Project will host a 1-hour “Lunch & Learn” webinar Friday, May 6 at noon. (Click to Register)
This session will be geared towards to healthcare (mental, physical) professionals, but open to anyone working with perinatal fathers or mothers, or babies.
During this virtual seminar, participants will learn about first-hand experiences from professionals working with new dads, including insights from fathers themselves. We’ll also discuss the importance of engaging dads in child care and family services, as well as strategies for engagement. Most importantly, this webinar will detail the needs and desires of male parents, how to support them and their mental health, and the impacts this can have on families and communities.
Following the presentation, attendees will be invited to join a Community of Learners for more in-depth exploration of how to better serve fathers and support healthy fathering. Fatherhood practitioners, mental health providers, teachers, barbers, church ministers, early childhood educators, home visitors, librarians, community liaisons, community health workers, women’s health and pediatric providers, and WIC professionals are just a few examples of family-serving professionals who would be perfect to join part one of our two-part Community of Learners sessions. Each session will be virtual and will build a network to identify the health and personal needs of fathers with babies and connect them to services and organizations.
