Dad's On A Journey

doaj

For Dads who are not quite ready to work collaboratively and safely with the child's other parent 

This program is an 8 week course, in a supportive group setting and is about unpacking, reflecting and creating a new safer journey which will help prevent and hopefully alleviate ‘sink holes’ along the journey.

This will lead to healthier, happier and safer outcomes for Dads and kids alike.

The framework of this work draws from but is not limited to; Bowlby's Attachment Theory

The Circle of Security, (Kent Hoffman, Glen Cooper and Bert Powell, 2001)

Glasser’s ‘Choice Theory’ (Choice Theory; A New Psychology of Personal Freedom, 1998)

The Safe and Together Model (David Mandel, 2001)

D.O.A.J. offers confidential group work with professional counsellors and support workers. We have a no judgement, supportive and safe environment which promotes discussion and friendship
