Upcoming Webinars on OPRE Healthy Marriage and Responsible Fatherhood Research and Evaluation Projects

WEBINARS: Two new federally-led evaluations to strengthen the implementation of Healthy Marriage and Responsible Fatherhood programs

The Strengthening the Implementation of Marriage and Relationship Programs (SIMR) and Strengthening the Implementation of Responsible Fatherhood Programs (SIRF) projects will develop and test promising implementation solutions to address common challenges for healthy marriage and relationship education (HMRE) and responsible fatherhood (RF) programs in areas such as recruitment, initial engagement, program completion, and engagement in program content. They will use rapid cycle approaches and partner with HMRE and RF programs to conduct this work.

WEBINAR: Pathways-to-Outcomes models for Responsible Fatherhood programs

Please join a webinar on Thursday, July 23rd from 2:00 to 3:00 PM EDT on the Pathways-to-Outcomes models for Responsible Fatherhood programs.
 
Responsible Fatherhood (RF) programming has grown out of research demonstrating the importance of father involvement in family life, specifically to reduce child poverty. RF programs funded by the Administration for Children and Families offer activities designed to strengthen positive father-child engagement, improve social and economic outcomes for fathers and their families, improve healthy couple and co-parenting relationships, and promote or sustain healthy marriage. To support development of future programs and guide research, Mathematica, as part of the Parents and Children Together (PACT) evaluation, developed four models that hypothesize how program activities may lead to intended outcomes. The hypotheses address:
  1. Improving fathers' co-parenting relationships
  2. Supporting fathers' development and well-being
  3. Improving fathers' employment and economic stability
  4. Enhancing fathers' parenting skills and increasing involvement in their children's lives
During the webinar, the PACT team will describe the work conducted to develop these models and introduce each model. The webinar will provide ideas for program activities that RF practitioners can consider, and potentially test, as part of their programs.

WEBINAR: Pathways-to-Outcomes models for Healthy Marriage and Relationship Education programs

Please join a webinar on July 27, 2020 from 12:00 to 1:00 PM EDT on the Pathways-to-Outcomes models for Healthy Marriage and Relationship Education programs serving adult couples.
 
Healthy Marriage and Relationship Education (HMRE) programming began as a relationship stability strategy for premarital couples, and spread to serve a broader range of couples, including low-income and at-risk families. HMRE programs for adult couples funded by the Administration for Children and Families address marriage and relationship skills, parenting skills, financial management, conflict resolution, and job and career advancement. To support development of future programs and guide research, Mathematica, as part of the Parents and Children Together (PACT) evaluation, developed three models that hypothesize how program activities may lead to intended outcomes. The hypotheses address:
  1. Selecting, tailoring, and delivering an evidence-informed HMRE curriculum
  2. Increasing participation in HMRE workshops
  3. Accommodating the unique circumstances of individuals and couples in programs
During the webinar, the PACT team will describe the work conducted to develop these models and introduce each model. The webinar will provide ideas for program activities that HMRE practitioners can consider, and potentially test, as part of their programs.
