NRFC July 2016 Webinar: Two-Generation Approaches to Working with Fathers


This webinar presented an overview of the latest two-generation research and discuss ways in which the concepts might be applied to fatherhood work. Two-generation approaches attend to the needs of parents or caregivers and their children simultaneously. Most two-generation work to date has been with mothers and their children. Although the ultimate goal of most fatherhood programs is enhanced child well-being, only a few focus directly on the needs of fathers and their children. Two-generation approaches that link services for fathers with services for children could increase program impacts and amplify outcomes for children and families. Some child-focused programs, particularly in the Head Start community, are providing services for fathers of participating children; there may also be opportunities for father-focused programs to link with established educational or health services for children.
