This report describes and summarizes results from a study conducted to test the effectiveness of the DAD MAP curriculum (Developing All Dads for Manhood and Parenting) on key fatherhood outcomes. The DAD MAP curriculum is used to guide the parenting workshop component of CFUF’s Baltimore Responsible Fatherhood Program (BRFP). The DAD MAP curriculum was developed by CFUF practitioner staff, in collaboration with researchers to outline procedures for teaching skills, guiding discussion, and facilitating interactive activities, with the goal of promoting responsible parenting and healthy relationships among fathers. The current study aims to answer the following research questions: 1) To what extent are changes in fatherhood outcomes associated with the participation of low-income fathers in the DAD MAP curriculum workshops compared to participation in an unstructured support group; and 2) Do some subgroups of fathers benefit from DAD MAP curriculum sessions more than others.
