About

This study examined whether a group educational intervention during the transition to parenthood can enhance the quality of father-child interaction and increase father involvement with their children. We conclude that a relatively brief intervention during the transition to parenthood can improve fathering, and we explore possible reasons for differential effects on areas of parenting.
