This workshop identifies why many fathers can feel left out as a parent, with examples of how fathers are minimized, marginalized, dismissed and even ignored. Yet the societal expectation is for fathers to step up and be more involved in their child’s life. In short, fathers are getting mixed messages and have little recourse. Examples can be found in research, hospitals, pediatrics, labor and delivery, newborn education, and service programs. Once identified, providers can make changes and be more inclusive of Fathers to make them feel important, welcomed, and inclusive. Solutions, recommendations, and problem-solving will all be a part of this three hour session.
