The transition to Fatherhood can be one of the most significant events a person can go through. This New Dads Group, intended for any dad that has a baby or child up to three years old of younger, has two goals:
First, to create a safe space for men to come together and share the joys as well as the struggles that fatherhood has to offer. We look to normalize the anxieties and complexities of navigating the changes in ourselves, as well as our primary relationships.
The second goal is to create a space where men can explore what it means to be a father, and begin the challenge of internalizing this label. We accomplish this through exploring our own experiences with the fathers and father figures in our lives, as well as our changing role in our own growing families.
This group is appropriate for all dads, regardless of sexual identity. Female partners who identify as female may find support community through Meghan Lewis, PhD or Our Family Coalition.
