Family Paths’ Fatherhood & Co-parenting: Beyond Conflict series

– Family Paths supports dads and father-figures by providing a dynamic and FREE 6-week series of classes called Fatherhood and Co-parenting: Beyond Conflict at our office in Oakland, CA. Guided by empathy, gratitude, reliability, and purpose, our curriculum is designed to build confidence and enhance dads’ ability to meet the challenges of the co-parenting experience. This program benefits fathers living in the home as well as those living separately. Led by Fatherhood Specialist, Michael Lewis, and featuring guest speakers from Alameda County Child Support Services and Family Court, dads in our classes learn how best to raise and nurture their kids, be a positive force in their children’s lives, how to effectively communicate with their co-parent, and how to navigate the Alameda County Family Court and Child Support systems. Funded by the Greater Good Science Center.
