Event description

Description

Researchers examining fathers, fathering or fatherhood are invited to contribute to the third symposium on Fatherhood Research in Australia to be held at the city campus of Deakin University on May 3rd and 4th 2018.

About the Symposium

The symposium is an annual opportunity for researchers to build and consolidate collaborations with other researchers and practitioners who work with fathers. The event is co-hosted by the Family Action Centre, The University of Newcastle and the Centre for Social and Early Emotional Development, Deakin University. A range of disciplines are represented.

At the second symposium in 2017, the Australian Fatherhood Research Consortium was founded and much progress has been made by consortium working groups in their investigations into their first domain of enquiry, fatherhood and postpartum sleep. In 2018, details of this progress will be shared and new directions for collaborations will be forged.

Although professionals and the public accept fathers’ contribution to the care and education of infants and children, there remain major gaps in our understanding of fathering, and we lack effective ways in which to engage with fathers.

We invite you to join us to build effective collaborations so that we may further the evidence base on fathering. Refreshments and lunch will be provided for both days, but registration is essential. For more information, please go to: http://mappresearch.org/frs. For information on the first FRS, please go to: https://goo.gl/fA9Nd9
