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.
