Mindful Fathering is a 12 week, evidence-informed, psycho-educational group program designed to reduce harm and promote mental health by working with fathers who have exposed their children to domestic violence. A growing problem—with high rates reported, investigated and validated—children exposed to domestic violence are at increased risk, immediately and over the life course, for depression, anxiety, social withdrawal, impaired affect regulation, aggression problems, and insecure attachment and trauma effects. Mindful fathering aims to reduce children’s exposure to intimate partner violence; reduce the risk maltreatment, thus increasing children’s safety and diverting families from further child welfare involvement; promote children’s mental health through healthier parenting practices; improved co-parenting relationships; promote healthier relationships fathers and their children.
