While individual home or office visits can be invaluable in your work with fathers, for many fathers it is participation in a group with other men that is most meaningful. I’ve heard fatherhood group work described as the “glue” that keeps men involved in a wider program and leads to powerful life changes for them and their families. For this to occur, a fatherhood group needs to be built and facilitated on a foundation of trust that encourages self-reflection, personal sharing, group support, and ongoing growth.
