For many men, the birth of their first child is a truly life-changing event. This updated book provides fathers with the answers and options to enable them to design a rewarding and effective fatherhood journey. Updates in this new edition: , *It focuses more directly on the five questions fathers commonly ask , *there is a new chapter reviewing the latest research demonstrating the impact fathers have on their children. , *Greater recognition is given to the emerging group of men who are actively seeking to be highly involved as fathers. More options are provided for this group. , *Greater emphasis is given to family patterns where both parents share paid work and caring. , *New material has been added to the team parenting and couple relationship sections. the chapter on integrating work and family has been substantially revised and covers the latest trends and options for men to take either parental or paternity leave. It seems that what new fathers are wanting has continued to change over the last five years. In this revised edition of FIRSt tIME FAtHER, the authors Dr Graeme Russell and tony White (who both work extensively with new fathers) show that contemporary men want to: , *have a strong and enduring relationship with their children; , *be actively involved in the day-to-day care of their children; , *share the parenting and paid work equally with their partner; , *take extended leave from paid work to be the primary caregiver for a period of time; and , *reduce their hours of work (for example, to part-time) to be highly involved in caring for their child.
Graeme Russell began his work on fatherhood in the 1970s. He is a leading international researcher and practitioner on fathers and families, with six books to his credit on fathers, families, and work/life including The Changing Role of Fathers and A Practical Guide for Fathers. Formerly associate professor of psychology at Macquarie University, he works with leading national and international organizations to implement effective approaches to work/life, flexibility, and diversity, including the highly successful workplace program Men at Work. Tony White, a psychologist and manager of health and welfare services, has worked for 40 years with families, focusing particularly on the antenatal and postnatal role of fathers. He has developed the Men in Families Project, a program for first-time fathers on the north coast of New South Wales that provides support for fathers from the outset.
