Father-Inclusive Practice in a Family Center: An Australian Perspective
Fletcher, Richard; St. George, Jennifer; May, Chris; Hartman, Deborah; King, Andrew
ZERO TO THREE, v35 n5 p60-67 May 2015
Because fathers are clearly important to family well-being, including fathers in services for families seems a straightforward idea. How hard can it be? Yet across health, education, and welfare services it is still mothers who attend and engage on behalf of their infants and children. The Family Action Centre, located on the east coast of Australia, has been addressing the need for father-inclusive practice though research, program development, and by disseminating good practice examples. The story of their progress over the last decade includes the national context of changing gender expectations in families, funding strategies for father-inclusive practice, and the strength of linking practice with education and research.
