This report includes perspectives from domestic violence advocates, batterer program representatives, and fatherhood program representatives on the scope and challenges of fatherhood programs. Participants attended two meetings held in May 2001 and July 2002, to discuss the variety of issues confronting fatherhood programs. One of the key concerns discussed was the inclusion of domestic violence information in such programs. The report shares participants' views on the prevalence of domestic violence and the characteristics of fathers attending fatherhood programs, barriers to collaborative work between fatherhood and men's groups and domestic violence groups, additional barriers that pose further challenges when working with low-income communities of color, and the importance of addressing domestic violence in fatherhood programs. 5 references.
