Dr. Katreena Scott discusses Canada’s Caring Dads programme, from its inception to accreditation plans
When I was training as a child clinical psychologist, with children who'd experienced abuse and trauma, we worked with children and mothers to create safety and predictability. But we didn't work with the fathers.
In the majority of cases, fathers had caused the trauma. And the children were still dealing with them, having visits once a week and every other weekend.
From the child’s perspective, we really needed to talk to fathers.
