Mindful Fathering is a 12-week, evidence-informed, early intervention psycho-educational group program developed by Yorktown Family Services. Designed to reduce harm and promote mental health and positive relationships with children and women, Mindful Fathering works with fathers who have exposed their children, of any age, to domestic violence.
Grounded in eight core features, Mindful Fathering helps fathers develop a personal vision for change based on identifying hopes for the future, setting goals and working together.
By using a transformative narrative approach to deconstruct and reconstruct fathers’ narratives, fathers learn they have the capacity and the means to make changes for themselves and for the well-being of their children.

Training can be arranged directly with Yorktown Family Services and customized to meet the interests and needs of individual organizations and/or service networks.
Mindful Fathering is delivered most effectively when organizations and staff are trained to use the program and can meet client and program delivery responsibilities.
Yorktown Family Services has an employment opportunity for a Group Facilitator for our Mindful Fathering Program.
