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
