A 2 hour webinar on fathers, work and family life where presenters
will highlight the pressures faced by today’s working father, who are still
expected to work hard to succeed in their careers while also being far more
involved as parents than dads of previous generations. The
presentation will also cover work-family struggles unique to military fathers. Several strategies dads
can use to be more efficient and effective in both roles will also be addressed
in the presentation. In addition, the presentation will explore ways dads can
consciously think through their priorities. Finally, presenters will discuss ways
to help support dads as they cope with work-family conflict.
