Father engagement is an important yet underdeveloped aspect of child welfare work. Both in the U.S. and internationally, child welfare work has traditionally focused on the mother-child dyad. This module aims to underscore the importance of father engagement by presenting research findings on this topic from studies involving child welfare practitioners and fathers. Father engagement and involvement as a prevention framework for child welfare agencies and systems is also presented, as is new global research on strategies for engaging fathers.
