December/January 2015Vol. 15, No. 11Championship Fathering Profile
The National Center for Fathering offers a self-assessment tool to aid fathers in evaluating their fathering methods. The Championship Fathering Profile (CFP) provides fathers with feedback and guidance on how to build on their strengths and improve weaknesses. By creating a profile and answering a series of questions in 13 domains, fathers can build on their childhood experiences to gain insight into how they developed their parenting style, grow a better understanding of how past experiences impact their current parenting decisions, and get new perspectives on improving relationships with children and spouses.
Child welfare professionals and programs that specifically focus on engaging fathers may find this and other fathering resources helpful in their work. The website also offers a train-the-trainer and small-group curricula, in addition to free e-books and other resources for fathers.
The Championship Fathering Profile is available on the National Center for Fathering website at http://spokestrainingexperience.fathers.com/.
