Fatherhood Engagement Training

American Humane is offering a training institute on Family Engagement and Father Involvement to provide innovative, in-person training. The institute covers:

  • Practical skills for caseworkers, supervisors, administrators, and policymakers
  • Cultural competency
  • Collaborations among diverse social service agencies, including foster care, in-home services, prevention, child support, law enforcement, workforce readiness, and community-based organizations
  • Assumptions about fathers and how to recognize them

The training institute uses a curriculum with a strong research basis (see www.abanet.org/child/fathers/research.shtml) and includes agency self-assessment to gauge father-friendliness of the agency culture. When possible, it also includes a panel of fathers to discuss real-life challenges and successes when working with the child welfare system.
