Webinar: The Unique Contributions of Fathers to their Children’s Development
February 20 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Presented by Tova Walsh, PhD, MSW, University of Wisconsin-Madison, School of Social Work
The presence of a caring, involved father is associated with positive developmental outcomes for children. This webinar will explore the important contribution of fathers to the cognitive, social, and emotional development of their children. Dr. Tova Walsh will share insights from the rapidly growing body of research on fathers’ influence on child development. Better understanding the distinct contributions of fathers can help service providers to be more directed in supporting fathers to build upon their strengths and skills and to communicate this knowledge with both fathers and mothers.
