361 - Being a Stay-at-Home Dad: Implication for the Mental Health Profession


Mar 31, 2019 7:30am ‐ Mar 31, 2019 8:30am


Credits: None available.

Description

The shift in the traditional male role of caregiver has resulted in a variety of social and mental health issues for stay-at-home dads (SAHDs). SAHDs experience struggles associated with balancing roles, encountering stereotypes, and lack of social support. Despite the increase in the prevalence of SAHD issues, there is a lack of research and interventions. The presenters will discuss results of a qualitative study with SAHDs including their experiences, interactions, and strategies for working with this population.

  • Attendees will gain knowledge regarding various issues related to stay-at-home dads’ gender roles, stereotypes, and social support.
  • Attendees will be provided an overview of the results of a research study exploring stay-at-home dads’ experiences with being a SAHD including themes related to becoming a SAHD, social interactions, and mental health needs.
  • Attendees will gain knowledge of potential strategies and interventions for working with SAHDs to meet social and mental health needs.

Speaker(s):

  • Eric S. Davis, PhD, Assistant Professor, University of South Florida
