Fatherhood and Public Policies: Myths, Facts, Challenges, and Future Directions, lecture by Cleopatra Howard Caldwell, PhD
12:30 PM -  2:00 PM
Diversity Talks: A Seminar Series on Policy and Race
Cleopatra Howard Caldwell

Fatherhood is both a social role and legal status. The way in which fathers fulfill their fathering responsibilities is of interest to both researchers and policymakers because of the implications for fathers and their children. In general, contemporary policymakers aim to give fathers more parental rights and responsibilities than previous generations, with the primary emphasis being establishing paternity, providing child support, and participating in child custody issues. This presentation will highlight results from a recent study funded by the Center for Public Policy in Diverse Societies designed to review federal, state, and local policies intended to assist fathers with their fathering responsibilities beyond the typical provider role and those that consider diverse groups of resident and nonresident fathers.
