Fatherhood Involvement Reference Report for 'No Man Left Behind: How and Why to Include Fathers in Government-Funded Parenting Strategies'

Summary

In December 2015, Shift released the Men and Boys Violence Prevention Project: Informing a Government of Alberta Action Plan to Engage Men and Boys to Stop Violence Against Women. One of the key priorities identified within this action plan was the need for new funding and support to increase positive fatherhood involvement as a key prevention strategy for domestic violence. To meet this need, Shift produced No Man Left Behind: How and Why to Include Fathers in Government-Funded Parenting Strategies. To support the research in this report, shift used five different research methods described in this Fatherhood Involvement Reference Report.
