Like Father Like Son will be developing a media campaign in the coming months. Revisit this page to find out more!
Do you know a Dad who has done a parenting program? If you do they're apparently very rare creatures, but a new research program through the University of NSW is trying to develop a parenting program that will attract Dads.
With the participation rates of fathers in parenting programs non-existent in some parts of Australia, UNSW researchers are leading a $2.6 million effort to engage and support fathers to help manage aggressive behaviours in their sons.
A hybrid of observational documentary, factual intervention and social experiment. Working together for the first time, a team of experts, led by dynamic Clinical Psychologist Professor Mark Dadds, put 4 families with 5 children suspected of having ADHD, through a cutting edge evidence based 9-week intervention program.
Fathers will be critical to the successful treatment of their sons’ aggressive and antisocial conduct in a UNSW-led project, which has today been awarded a $2.6 million grant from the Movember Foundation.
