There are many Canadian projects and programs that work to engage men and boys to help reduce and prevent gender-based violence and address masculinity. This webinar will present two existing programs within Ontario around involved fatherhood and men who have used violence.
The Caring Dads program was specifically designed from the premise that violence agai nst women and violence against children are intricately intertwined, and that these two issues both can and should be addressed together. The program was developed in collaboration with child protective services, batterer intervention programs, children's mental health agencies, women's advocates, centers for children and families involved in the justice system, family resource agencies and probation and parole services. The Caring Dads curriculum works with fathers to change patterns of abuse, increase fathers’ awareness and application of child-centered fathering and to promote respectful co-parenting with children’s mothers.

The Punjabi Community Health Services began in 1990 as a community development project and it offers culturally relevant services and supports to youth and their families in the areas of mental health, cultural conflict, domestic violence, and substance abuse. Services are provided in English, Punjabi, Hindi and Urdu. Learn more (www.caringdads.org/).
