This brief is intended to support the efforts of both researchers and father-serving professionals to study, evaluate, and implement practices for use in fatherhood programs to help prevent and address domestic violence (DV; defined in this brief as violence between current or former intimate partners). We summarize key findings from a recent research study and provide concrete practice recommendations for preventing and addressing DV through fatherhood programs based on these findings. The brief also provides a list of additional resources for father-serving professionals.
