As part of the NRFC’s efforts to support the responsible fatherhood field the NRFC hosts a Webinar series. Originally directed toward the Office of Family Assistance-funded Responsible Fatherhood grantee programs, these Webinars focus on a range of programmatic topics, including working with specific populations, evaluation support, and program implementation tools.
Taking the Domestic Violence Conversation to the Community
Posted below are supporting documents associated with the August 16, 2011 National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse Technical Assistance Webinar, “Taking the Domestic Violence Conversation to the Community.”
This webinar presented strategies and approaches you can use in your program to raise awareness and change behavior, and had an emphasis on working with men in a fatherhood context and empowering them to take these conversations to family, friends and community. Topics included: ways to raise fatherhood program participants' awareness of the realities of violent and controlling behavior and the negative impacts for children; emphasize communication, mutual understanding, and healing; and, ways to use fatherhood groups to reinforce the message and build mutual support systems to change behavior.
