State Policies and Practices to Promote Father Involvement
Fatherhood Research & Practice Network (FRPN) will host a free webinar that highlights innovative state policies and practices to engage fathers in key family programs. Topics that will be addressed include:
- How are child welfare agencies locating fathers whose children are in child welfare cases, including fathers in prevention, case planning and treatment services, staffing father outreach efforts and adjusting child support collection to promote family reunification in foster care cases?
- How are maternal and child health agencies engaging fathers in prenatal and post-partum care, efforts to improve infant health and reduce mortality, initiatives on vaccinations and nutrition, home visiting, family preservation services and early learning experiences?
- What type of fatherhood research is needed to move the policy agenda forward in these areas?
