Caring Dads is a child centred programme. Paul is an experienced facilitator of the Caring Dads programme and works in partnership with Gorwel – Grŵp Cynefin.
The Caring Dads programme focuses on:-
- helping men recognise attitudes, beliefs, and behaviours that support healthy and unhealthy father-child relationships
- develop skills for interacting with children in healthy ways
- appreciate the impact on children of controlling, intimidating, abusive and neglectful actions including witnessing domestic violence
During Caring Dads, fathers will develop skills to cope in healthy ways with frustrating situations, including:-
- Understanding how different fathering strategies and choices affect children
- Increasing their awareness of controlling, abusive, and neglectful attitudes and behaviours
- Developing strategies to strengthen the father-child relationship
