Positive father engagement can mitigate some of the negative effects of parental separation on children, even among families with unmarried, nonresident fathers. The coparenting relationship is vital to the involvement of nonresident fathers. Simply put, bad coparenting relationships reduce father-child contact and involvement. The coparenting relationship is challenging to improve, and more effective strategies that involve getting mothers to participate are even more challenging to accomplish. This webinar focuses on three studies of mother engagement in coparenting interventions that were funded by the Fatherhood Research & Practice Network (FRPN).
Webinar presenters include:
- Sarah Whitton, University of Cincinnati and Kimberly Sperber, Talbert House, “Evaluating Mother and Nonresidential Father Engagement in Coparenting Services in a Fatherhood Program"
- Armon Perry, University of Louisville, Kent School of Social Work, “Fatherhood and Coparenting”
- Jay Fagan, Temple University, School of Social Work, “Mothers Engagement in Coparenting and Coparenting Intervention Outcomes for Mothers and Fathers”
- Discussant: Jeffrey Johnson, President and CEO, National Partnership for Community Leadership
