Call on men's hidden strengths to help them become responsible fathers in even the most challenging circumstances! Clinical and Educational Interventions with Fathers gives you fresh approaches for effective in terventions with fathers. Whether by calling on their faith to help th em deal with the complexities of fatherhood or offering high-tech inte rventions on the Internet, these techniques help men find their streng ths, maintain their masculinity, and learn to guide, nurture, and disc ipline with love and responsibility. Instead of thinking of fathers as deficient, the book emphasizes finding fathersF strengths and potenti als for growth. It also respects the diversity of parenting styles amo ng fathers from various ethnic, racial, and class backgrounds. No man wants to be a bad father. Nevertheless, many men in our culture do not know how to care for the children they beget. Trapped by stereotypes of masculine behavior and deprived of positive role models, they find themselves trying to do the challenging work of fatherhood without the necessary resources, information, or support.
