As part of our 15 year celebration DadsWork are delighted to be working in partnership with Father’s Network Scotland and Support from the Start to offer four training opportunities to practitioners across East Lothian to attend an excellent ½ day training programme called Understanding DAD
delivered by Chris Mieztis (Fathers Network Scotland).
By the end of the course participants will have:
• Developed their ability to identify aspects of their practice they intend to change to be more father-inclusive
• An improved understanding of the messages children, young people, families, workers and services give and receive about parenthood, families and the role of the father
• Improved knowledge, skills and confidence to better engage male parents and carers successfully
• Improved value and understanding of the role of the father and father figures
What Course Participants have said?
“Attending the Understanding Dad training has hugely changed our practice” http://
“This has made me aware of my own practice and realize how excluded dads can feel”.
“I’ve learned how a small change in practice can encourage dads to be involved in contacts we have with families”
