Including Fathers in Clinical Interventions for Children and Adolescents
fathers, children & adolescents psychopathology, father's involvement, mental health treatment
This chapter focuses on fathers and children who need help for mental health problems and problems in living. In order to acquaint readers with fathers' and children's functioning in the clinical realm, we first review the connections between fathers' and children's psychopathology, then provide an overview of fathers' involvement in mental health treatment, which is followed by a discussion of the barriers that keep many fathers from becoming involved in mental health treatment, and an overview of what predicts fathers' involvement in treatment. The chapter concludes with specific suggestions for increasing fathers' involvement in child, adolescent, and family-oriented clinical interventions.
