Myths continue to exist regarding fathers and their relationship with their children. Some of these myths permeate our systems and create invisible obstacles, known as implicit bias, that can hinder both the father’s ability to connect with child welfare services and resulting family outcomes. This video can help participants identify and support strategies that encourage the equitable engagement of fathers and provide opportunities to navigate barriers and challenges.
