Supporting fathers after separation or divorce

Results from 14 different projects providing parenting support to fathers after separation or divorce are reviewed in a new study from the Centre for Research on the Child and the Family at the University of East Anglia.

An extensive international search for published reviews of parenting education programmes revealed only 14 which involved fathers, mostly from America with one each from the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Israel.

The study's authors, Georgia Philip and Margaret O'Brien mention the debate about the absence of separated fathers from their children's lives in the first sentence of the introduction to this report.  Their study tries to assess how much fathers are included in post-separation parenting support, and also asks whether such parenting programmes can be shown to be effective.
