About This Program

My Baby's Father Male Involvement Training has been reviewed by the CEBC in the area of: Father Involvement Interventions, but lacks the necessary research evidence to be given a Scientific Rating.

Target Population: Child welfare case workers

Brief Description

The My Baby's Father Male Involvement Training is a highly interactive training model that uses an intergenerational family charting process. The model provides sequential steps for intervening within a family system and for helping to redefine and redirect roles and communication patterns within the family. My Baby's Father Male Involvement Training enhances the capacity of agencies to navigate through barriers and meet other goals of family involvement, reunification, worker sensitivity, worker skill development, and case management. The model gives direct case workers safe and appropriate skills that are usable in a team context. It teaches simple interventions that structure, shape, and support the time frames set up for specific outcomes.

Relevant Published, Peer-Reviewed Research

This program has been reviewed and it was determined that this program lacks the type of published, peer-reviewed research that meets the CEBC criteria for a scientific rating of 1 – 5. Therefore, the program has been given the classification of "NR - Not able to be Rated." It was reviewed because it was identified by the topic expert as a program being used in the field, or it is being marketed and/or used in California with children receiving services from child welfare or related systems and their parents/caregivers. Some programs that are not rated may have published, peer-reviewed research that does not meet the above stated criteria or may have eligible studies that have not yet been published in the peer-reviewed literature.
