About the opportunity

Caring Dads combines elements of parenting, fathering, family violence and child protection practice to enhance the safety and well-being of children.

Program principles emphasize the need to enhance men’s motivation, promote child-centred fathering, address men’s ability to engage in respectful, non-abusive co-parenting with children’s mothers, recognize that children’s experience of trauma will impact the rate of possible change, and work collaboratively with other service providers to ensure that children benefit (and are not unintentionally harmed) as a result of father’s participation in the intervention.

The Caring Dads Clinician will be responsible for joint facilitation of the Caring Dads program, undertaking individual assessments of men undertaking the program and collaboration with services involved with the client to manage the risks associated with the participants.
