The inclusion of fathers in family therapy: A research based perspective
|Title:||The inclusion of fathers in family therapy: A research based perspective||Authors:||Carr, Alan||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/5320||Date:||Sep-1998||Online since:||2014-01-30T09:40:57Z||Abstract:||This paper summarizes the results of research on the role of fathers in families and family therapy with particular reference to preparation for fatherhood, father involvement in family life as a protective factor, fathers' deviant behaviour as a risk factor, fathers' communication and coping styles, fatherhood and different types of marriages, and the effects of the workplace on fathers' behaviour within the family. Available research suggests that, with respect to problem formation, the behaviour of fathers may serve as either a risk factor or as a protective factor. With respect to problem resolution, fathers may be a powerful therapeutic resource or seriously compromise effectiveness of family therapy. The implications of research for clinical practice are discussed.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Springer Verlag||Journal:||Contemporary Family Therapy||Volume:||20||Issue:||3||Start page:||371||End page:||383||Copyright (published version):||1998 Springer Verlag||Keywords:||Family therapy; Fathers; Father-involvement||DOI:||10.1023/A:1022425231125||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
