Supporting new dads

Becoming a father is a life-changing event, which may be both joyful and terrifying.  While the role of mother is typically more visible, fathers undeniably play a critical role in the lives of their children.  
This group focuses on the needs of first-time dads and deeply explores the sacred transition to fatherhood. Together, we will support each other as we seek to better serve our children, partners, and selves.

In these five weeks you will:

  • discuss what to expect and how to balance responsibilities during the first year

  • explore how your identity may change with transition into fatherhood

  • reflect on your own childhood and your relationship with your caregivers

  • identify & process your hopes & fears of fatherhood

  • learn communication skills for navigating changing relationships with family & friends

  • build a support network with other local fathers
