Men and Families Newsletter, n1-2 Feb-Sep 1995
This newsletter, published in both English and Spanish versions, focuses on men and their roles in families. It stems from a 3-day workshop held at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) in Mexico City. The 24 participating researchers and practitioners discussed ways to support men in fathering roles in order to enhance the well-being of fathers and their families. Features of issue number one include: (1) "News from Network Participants," providing news from Nicaragua, Jamaica, Mexico, and the United States; (2) "Spotlight on Research," on the effectiveness of father education programs; (3) "Program Interventions," noting that programs directed toward women have begun to incorporate men; (4) "UNICEF Conference," discussing the need for UNICEF to include the role of fathers in programming; (5) "Bibliographic Resources," reviewing a new book on including fathers in early childhood programs; (6) "Research Funding," about possible sources of funding for research on the roles of men in families; and (7) "Question Box," requesting questions and potential research areas.
