Reflections on Theory and Measures for Fatherhood Programs: Father Involvement and Co-Parenting Outcomes

Sep 2014 | Jay Fagan, Rebecca Kaufman

The following working paper, authored by FRPN project team members Jay Fagan, Ph.D., and Rebecca Kaufman, M.S.W., reviews and synthesizes attempts that have been made by researchers, policymakers and practitioners to identify outcomes for responsible fathering and to develop measures of those outcomes. The focus of this paper is on two dimensions of fatherhood, fathers’ involvement and engagement with children and fathers’ co-parenting relationships with the child’s mother, and how the outcomes and measures associated with fatherhood programs should be rooted in established theory.
