Since 1998, the International Fatherhood Conference has brought visibility and voice to the field of responsible fatherhood through the efforts of practitioners, researchers, and policy makers. The 20th Annual International Fatherhood Conference continues in this tradition. The conference theme, “Celebrating 20 Years of Promoting Responsible Fatherhood and Strengthening Families,” grows out of an emerging consensus regarding the importance of both fathers and mothers, married and unmarried, custodial and non-custodial to the healthy growth and development of children.
The 2018 International Fatherhood Conference will engage attendees in reflective yet forward-looking discussions and workshops on evidenced based and evidence-informed practices, and policies and research findings that are leading to advances in the responsible fatherhood field.
The conference will feature a pre-conference on evaluation of fatherhood programs with speakers and workshop presenters who will share their expertise on effective practices.
