During this session, I will speak with Dr. Kyle Pruett, famed child psychiatrist, about how he begins with love in all of his research, teachings, and writings. We will specifically discuss his leadership and co-creation of the Supporting Father Program with his wife Marsha Kline Pruett. The default family paradigm that still prevails in most social service settings typically focuses on the family as “a mother and her children.” This emphasis tends to relegate fathers to a diminished role, marginalizing their potential and their importance. The research which includes substantial longitudinal data from interventions globally confirms that when fathers become more involved in parenting – and in working with mothers as co-parents and partners – healthier parents, children, and families are the outcome.
