Develop a better understanding of the importance of fathers to the youth with whom we work. This epidemic of the often-absent father doesn’t mean that the father doesn’t fulfill an important role in a child’s and family’s life. We often leave the paternal side of the youth’s family completely out of an assessment when developing our treatment plans with youth in out of home care even though the father is very much a part of the youth’s “picture” and impacts their day-to-day functioning.
