Abstract

Fathers are involved in treatment for child and family problems to a far lesser extent than are mothers. This article reviews the level of fathers' inclusion in therapy, delineates possible barriers to fathers' participation in child-related treatment, and discusses factors associated with fathers' involvement in therapy. Empirically and clinically informed strategies to engage fathers in treatment are offered to help therapists increase fathers' participation in the therapeutic process. Finally, future directions for clinically informed research in this area are discussed.
