In this previously recorded webinar, Dr. Tova Walsh from the University of Wisconsin–Madison School of Social Work shares insights from the rapidly growing body of research on fathers’ influence on child development. Dr. Walsh highlights the important contribution of caring, involved fathers to the cognitive, social, and emotional development of their children. By better understanding the distinct contributions of fathers, service providers can be more directed in supporting the strengths and skills of fathers and in communicating this knowledge with both fathers and mothers. This webinar was supported in partnership with the Institute for Research on Poverty.
