Like Father Like Son: Fathers Against Violence and Aggression

This project, which is been supported with a $2.6 million grant from the Movember Foundation, seeks to decrease intergenerational transmission of violence and other mental health issues through increasing father involvement in programs addressing parenting and improving mental health in children. Prof Lenroot of NeuRA is part of an international group of researchers, led by Prof Mark Dadds of the University of Sydney, who are creating a national collaboration of health researchers, clinicians, policy leaders and consumer groups to put into place a range of innovative strategies such as web-based parenting programs to enhance participation of fathers and creating changes in policy and clinical practice at a national level.
