Quality father involvement during early childhood is associated with positive social (e.g., prosocial skills; Lindsey, Cremeens, & Caldera, 2010), emotional (e.g., self-regulation, externalizing behaviors; Paquette & Dumont, 2013; Ramchandani et al., 2013), and cognitive (e.g., executive function; Bronte-Tinkew, Carrano, Horowitz, & Kinukawa, 2008; Meuwissen & Englund, 2016) outcomes for children. Variations in father involvement due to child, familial, societal, and cultural factors indicate the need for further attention given to diverse groups of fathers (Cabrera, Hofferth, & Chae, 2011). Father involvement is known to vary by child, familial, societal, and cultural factors, emphasizing the need for further research with specific populations of fathers, including Latino fathers. Addressing this need, we examined the psychometric properties of a multidimensional measurement of father involvement with infants, the Paternal Involvement with Infants Scale (PIWIS), with Latino fathers of infants. We will review findings from our program of research regarding paternal mental health and involvement with infants and partners through the lens of feminist intersectionality. We will also review our research findings regarding the use of hope theory and assessment with Latino fathers as a means to enhance participants awareness of the nuanced issues and strengths during the transition to fatherhood.

Learning Objectives

1.    Describe common myths and research findings regarding Latino fathers’ involvement with their young children

2.    Apply an intersectional framework to clinical work and research with Latino fathers

3.    List several approaches to taking a strengths-based approach to psychotherapy with Latino fathers.

Course Level: Intermediate

Target Audience: Psychologists (Researchers and Practitioners), Grad Students, and Allied Professionals
