The Caring Dads Program is an intervention program designed for men who have abused, neglected their children, or exposed them to abuse of their mother. Through the 17 sessions fathers will develop skills to cope in healthy ways with frustrating situations; understand how different fathering strategies and choices affect children; increase their awareness of controlling, abusive, and neglectful attitudes and behaviours; be provided with strategies to strengthen the father-child relationship. The program is a unique opportunity for men to connect as fathers and participate in discussions around improving their relationships with their children.
