Learn techniques to effectively involve dads from a variety of cultural backgrounds.
Wednesday, February 12, 2014
10-11AM Pacific Time
This webinar synthesizes research and theory regarding how men’s socialization relates to their experience navigating the transition to new fatherhood. While the majority of parent educators and medical personnel see the fathers’ role during the perinatal period as that of helper to the mother, a growing body of empirical evidence shows that fathers can make unique and long-lasting contributions to their child – and their partner’s – well-being. Participants will gain insight into psychological, hormonal, interpersonal, and societal factors which impact new fathers’ experience along with concrete techniques to effectively involve dads from a variety of cultural backgrounds.
After participating, you will be able to:
Review research regarding the effects of paternal engagement with their infants and partners.
Discuss barriers to including fathers in pregnancy, birth, and caring for infants.
Review key biopsychosocial factors (including culture) to consider in order to understand how men adjust to the transition of fatherhood.
Describe ways that allied health professionals can work to engage dads throughout the perinatal period.
Our speaker is Dr. Daniel Singley.
