Father care, father presence, unemployment and joblessness, systemic barriers, cooperative parenting, role transitions, and intergenerational learning: These are the topics of the Core Learnings of the National Center on Fathers and Families (NCOFF). The seven Core Learnings are at the heart of NCOFF's agenda for research, practice, and policy and a framework for the field. They represent the knowledge and experience of practitioners who confront complex problems facing fathers and families and are consistent with research across multiple disciplines.
NCFMR has a number of working papers and research briefs written by faculty affiliates, researchers, and advanced graduate students, examining family structure topics of interest to family scholars, policy makers, and practitioners.
Welcome to NCOFF's blog. The blog is intended to maintain ongoing discussion between and among practitioners, researchers and policy makers about new and emerging issues around fathers and families. It is designed to expand and enrich current understandings of the salient issues in the field. NCOFF invites thoughts, questions and perspectives that focus on research, everyday practice and policy. We invite comments starting the first week of March.
