The potential benefits of including fathers in parenting programs is increasingly recognized. Evidence suggests that key aspects of child behavior, fathering, and partner relationships can be positively affected by interventions if fathers are included. This chapter discusses the role of fathers in children’s development and why father-inclusive parenting programs are needed. Next, there is an examination of how the Triple P—Positive Parenting Program has engaged fathers to support the success of Triple P interventions. Research findings illustrate the importance of engaging fathers and co-parenting couples and addressing the needs and interests of both parents in program design and content.
