Dad & Infant Psychosocial Rehabilitation (PSR) Group

"Therapeutic Recreation (TR) includes activities, often viewed as fun, 

that can provide tangible, positive, clinical outcomes for children."

Who?

This is a group provided for our members who are fathers of infants.  

What?

  • This group is to support and enhance father and infant interaction as, "Father-infant bonding is important for child development." The benefits of a strong relationship last longer than childhood as "a strong father-son bond forged during childhood may help men deal with everyday stress later in life."
Why?

    • In the research article, "What about dad? Psychosocial and mental health issues for new fathers," evidence shows that "the father-infant relationship is influenced by the partner relationship as well as the fathers psychological wellbeing."
