Developed in a university partnership, Caring Dads is an evidence-based group
intervention program for men who have abused, neglected, or exposed their children to domestic violence. The Caring Dads curriculum works with fathers to change patterns of abuse, to increase fathers’ awareness and application of child-centered fathering, and to promote respectful co-parenting with children’s mothers.
Our upcoming training event is the next opportunity to become an Accredited Caring Dads Facilitator and join the leading, international network of clinicians working in the fields of domestic and gendered violence.
Caring Dads Facilitator training is appropriate for any professional interested in working with fathers (including biological, step, or common-law fathers) who have who have physically abused, emotionally abused or neglected their children, or exposed their children to domestic violence, or who are deemed to be at high-risk for these behaviours.
This Facilitator Training event will be held over 2 days and is designed to introduce participants to the principles and values that guide the Caring Dads program. We then move into interactive training on the program material. Role plays are used to demonstrate key exercises and participants have the chance to acquire and practice skills in leading group exercise.
Topics include, among others:
- Caring Dads program goals, principles and values
- The need for intervention with fathers
- Child-centred fathering
- Referral, intake and collaborative case management
- Mother contact
- Case reviews
- Supporting community collaboration
