Book Description

17 Sep 2008
One of the aims of the book is to draw together contemporary research evidence, social theory and policy which may effect how practitioners, students and academics conceptualise and work with young fathers. Consequently, each chapter illustrates the points it makes using discrete evidence from that particular field. Moreover, in order to make this process more user friendly each chapter provides a summary of this literature and evidence. Finally, in order to make the book come alive it draws on case studies, which are drawn, variously, from two studies conducted by the editor. Contents include: Contextualising the evidence: Young fathers, family and professional support The legislative and policy context of young fathers and their children I ve got to release it : sexual health and young men A father is born: the role of the midwife in involving young fathers in the birth and early parenting of their children Safeguarding young fathers and their children The role of fathers in their children s lives Recklessness, rescue and responsibility

5.0 out of 5 stars Appreciation for practical research 14 Mar 2010
Quite clearly, this book has been purposefully created to draw together insights from multiple sources to help fill a critical gap in our understanding of the concerns of young fathers. It's accessible, it's engaging, it's supported with academic evidence and it's immediately relevant to my work with young families. More institutions and academics would do well to follow this example of offering insightful, practical research.
