  1. Be able to cite common myths about early fatherhood.
  2. List prevalence and descriptions of paternal mood and anxiety disorders.
  3. Describe interventions and resources to support fathers in the perinatal period.

This presentation synthesizes research and theory regarding how men’s socialization relates to their experience navigating the transition to new fatherhood. While the majority of parent educators and medical personnel see the fathers’ role during the peripartum period as that of helper to the mother, a growing body of empirical evidence shows that fathers can make unique and long-lasting contributions to their child – and their partner’s – well-being.
