The FRPN will host our ninth learning community webinar on Tuesday, October 3 at 12:00 p.m. EST.
This webinar will present new approaches to engaging low-income fathers to improve their parenting skills and/or relationships with their children. Three programs working to get fathers and their children involved in interactive activities that are also embedded with parenting information and feedback will be highlighted. Preliminary research findings for all three approaches are promising. Each program is being scaled up and adapted to new settings and populations. The featured programs and researchers include:
Just Beginning (aka “Baby Elmo”): Rachel Barr, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Georgetown University and Terry Harrak, Just Beginning Program Manager, Youth Law Center, San Francisco, CA
The Fathers and Sons Program: Cleopatra Howard Caldwell, Ph.D. Professor of Health, Behavior and Health Education and Director, Center for Research on Ethnicity, Culture and Health, University of Michigan
The Coaching Our Acting-Out Children: Heightening Essential Skills (COACHES) Program: Gregory Fabiano, Ph.D., Professor of Counseling, School, and Educational Psychology, University at Buffalo
