Several parent training and support programs have been shown to improve parent–child relationships and otherparenting outcomes. However, relatively few are delivered specifically to fathers. The available evidence suggeststhat recruiting and retaining fathers in parenting programs is a challenge, and even less research has examined theeffectiveness of such programs. The purpose of this study was to better understand father engagement in a parentingsupport program, and also to understand whether a peer-support parenting program was effective at improvingoutcomes for fathers.
