Fathers on the Move (Western Australia)

A toolbox approach to fatherhood in all its forms presented as a special weekend workshop for Fathers.

We invite you to explore your experiences of being a father, including:

  • your dad and how he has influenced your life.
  • you as a father and the feelings you carry around this.
  • your childrens experience of you.
  • an opportunity for you to provide great fathering to your children in the future.

This workshop allows 10 men to explore their life’s journey and how the various facets of fatherhood have led them to this point in their lives. The building of your ‘Father toolbox’ produces strong personal and relationship techniques and skills in a supportive group setting. The insight, healing and inspiration from this workshop can then be adapted to address your personal vision of the future and to remove barriers to achieving this.
