How to Help Indigenous Dads Be More Positively Involved​​​​​​​

About The Webinar

If you work with Indigenous families then you know there are social forces that create barriers for Indigenous fathers being positively involved with their children. You may also wonder, where do I start to try to address these challenges?

This webinar offered in partnership with Dove Men+Care and led by Dr. Jessica Ball, a leading scholar on father involvement in Canada, and the foremost researcher on Indigenous fathers, will highlight the needs of fathers in Canada and give you practical, doable steps to take right now.

With a focus on the unique circumstances, experiences and goals of First Nations fathers, attendees will be given insight drawn from a national study of fatherhood that includes:

  • A description of the social forces in Canada that create barriers to positive father involvement

  • The historical and colonial landscape in Canada that creates challenges for Indigenous fathers

  • Key steps to create better conditions for Indigenous fathers to be positively involved

  • Guiding principles for outreach and support in Indigenous communities

  • Promising practices in communities leading the way
