Collapse Introduction to Working with Men as Parents: Fathers

If we want to work with families, we cannot just work with women and children.  We need to be able to work with men. This is important for all families but may be even more important for families from poor and historically oppressed communities. To do this correctly, we need to approach fathers, in a manner consistent with domestic violence-informed practice. This means approaching men with high expectations, and the willingness to learn new approaches and practices. Working with men requires being able to understand male parental development and how men’s choices and behaviors impacts child and family functioning. It involves understanding how to use this information to engage men and to development meaningful child and family focused interventions. It also involves being able to integrate these understandings into our work with women and children. In this course we will be considering all these items from the perspective of domestic violence-informed policy and practice, diverse communities and different disciplines.  Throughout this course we will highlight specific connections to the Safe and Together Model Principles, Critical Components, Multiple Pathways to Harm and Practice Tools.

As result of this training, the participants will be better able to:

• Describe key aspects of male parental development and how men’s choices and behaviors impacts child and family functioning. 

• Use a father-inclusive, domestic violence-informed  framework to engage men and to development meaningful child and family focused interventions.

• Describe how father-inclusive work can benefit women and children. 

• Describe how a father-inclusive approach can support interventions with domestic violence perpetrators as a parents 

• Describe specific approaches related to engaging men as parents, prevention and early intervention and domestic violence-informed practice

    The Safe and Together™ Model is an internationally recognized suite of tools and interventions designed to help child welfare and their partners become domestic violence-informed. Continuously refined based on years of experiencing implementing the Model across the United States and other countries, the Model helps improve competencies and cross system collaboration related to the intersection of domestic violence and child maltreatment. (For Colorado version: It is a recognized in Colorado as an important guide for practice.)

    This child-centered Model derives its name from the concept that children are best served when we can work toward keeping them safe and together with the non-offending parent (the adult domestic violence survivor). The Model provides a framework for partnering with domestic violence survivors and intervening with domestic violence perpetrators in order to enhance the safety and well-being of children.

    ·     the principles and components of the Safe and Together Model,
