The Guidance Center’s Meeting Place has recently rolled out a program allowing fathers, of any Guidance Center clients, the opportunity to speak with one another and better understand the ages, stages, and needs of their children. This short term educational group provides concrete educational opportunities for fathers to increase their capabilities to build relationships with their children. The overall goal of the group is to increase the fathers’ understanding of their child’s current psychosocial developmental profiles, what is expected and unexpected behavior, and information regarding their child’s expected educational needs. After just two meetings, led by a Guidance Center board member, we are seeing the fathers open up and gain valuable insight from one another’s experiences.
