General Information

Summary Paragraph

This program is structured to provide experiences to fathers that allow them to have new cognitive (thinking) and affective (feeling) responses, thus providing the opportunity to change parenting attitudes and behaviors. Program participants can choose to reshape and relearn fathering, to let go of old fathering practices that do not bring desired results, and to adopt new nurturing ones that achieve the established goals.
