The author of this blog post points out that the focus of child protection social workers is generally much more on mothers than on fathers and explains that even when fathers are included they are often viewed through a “risk lens”. He considers some of the underlying reasons for this disparity, discusses the need to better understand the difficulties that fathers may face, and offers tips to help social workers adjust the way they support fathers.
