This report provides principles, practices, and helpful resources for fatherhood programs to help address and prevent domestic violence (DV) in their participants’ relationships. The report’s five primary sections
include an overview with background information, three resources that can be used individually or as a series, and a detailed list of additional resources.

This report was created through the Preventing and Addressing Intimate Violence when Engaging Dads (PAIVED) study. Findings from the PAIVED study were informed by Responsible Fatherhood (RF) programs funded through the Office of Family Assistance within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families (ACF). However, the recommendations and resources are applicable to and useful for all fatherhood programs across the country, regardless of federal funding. Download for more.
