Alliance-member agency Children’s Institute, Inc. invites workshop proposals for its Annual Fatherhood Solutions Conference scheduled for Friday, June 19, 2015, in Los Angeles.
This gathering has proven to be popular for both professionals and fathers. This year’s theme – “Father’s Day: It happens 365 times a year!” – reflects the importance that fathers play in the daily lives of their children, families and within the broader community.
The goal of this conference is to educate, train and create dialogue on the impact of fathers in child welfare systems, foster care, early childhood education, school readiness and child wellness/resiliency.
In keeping with the multidisciplinary spirit of the program, we encourage practitioners, educators, researchers and advocates from all aspects of social services, child welfare and mental health to participate as both presenters and attendees.
In addition to providing professionals with the latest research, best practices and innovations, we have included a designated track for fathers to help them gain knowledge and practical parenting skills.
