Code: BH/19/0652 Working with Difficult to Engage Fathers: Gaining Insight and Practical Strategies

This one and a half day course will give attendees the opportunity to develop practical skills and strategies to build positive working relationships with fathers.  They will hear about the wide ranging implications of meaningful engagement through the latest research and theories, and Q&A sessions with professionals with specialist knowledge/experience. 

Practitioners will consider how a two-way engagement barrier between professionals and fathers can form and will learn how to overcome the challenges this presents.  They will also explore why fathers can be hard to engage and the underlying reasons for their use of anger, aggression and non-engagement.  

The additional half-day will ensure attendees have time to embed the learning into their practice by trying out techniques and strategies, then returning as a group to reflect on their success, as well as discuss challenges.
