NURTURING FATHERS PROGRAM

Nurturing Fathers Program:

The Nurturing Fathers Program is a 13-week evidence-based program for developing attitudes and skills for male nurturance. The group of 10 to 20 fathers meet weekly for 2 1/2 hours.

This program offers a unique approach to discipline that every man can relate to. We help fathers deal with their feelings, managing anger, resolving conflicts, engage in appropriate play, teach values, and be a role model. We discus the differences between fathering sons and fathering daughters, the influence of cultural perspectives, teamwork within the family, issues around work and fathering, and much more.
