Understanding Fatherhood Curriculum



EMPOWER NEW DADS WITH A CURRICULUM MADE FOR HOW MEN LEARN.

InJoy’s multi-format fatherhood curriculum, Understanding Fatherhood, was designed with input from experienced fatherhood educators to ensure it addresses the topics that are most important to new dads. Covering pregnancy, birth, and babies from a father’s perspective, the evidence-based content provides standardization, while also allowing for spontaneity and discussion in the classroom. The short video clips provide practical information to new and expectant dads in a way that reassures and eases fears. This curriculum can be quickly implemented by your facility, without limitations on who can teach it or how to structure the class. A companion facilitator's guide with tips for teaching male learners and parent handouts make it easy for any educator to use this curriculum.
