Title: Dads and Their Kids: The Role of Positive Father-Child Relationships for Early Development
The importance of fathers for the healthy development of children is often overlooked, and African American and Latino low-income fathers, in particular, are often painted as absent and uninvolved. Dr. Caughy will present findings from a longitudinal study of African American and Latino low-income children from the Dallas area that highlight the unique relationships between fathers and children and how these relationships support healthy development. Implications of these findings for designing early intervention approaches that can support positive fathering will be discussed.
The United Way of Metropolitan Dallas is a sponsor for this lecture.
