This chapter describes Fathers Too!, a semi-structured, gender-specific, individual psychotherapy for substance-abusing fathers. Fathers Too! is designed to improve father-child relationships and is intended for men enrolled in substance abuse treatment. The chapter first provides an overview of the program's target population and conceptual framework before turning to a discussion of its six distinguishing characteristics: a focus on fathering, a relational focus, a focus on self-defined goals, matching of therapeutic technique to therapeutic task, attention to male gender, and a focus on both fidelity and flexibility. It then considers the program's therapeutic techniques and thematic treatment modules.
