Aquí tienes toda la información sobre este trabajo:

Authors from a range of backgrounds and disciplines break new ground as they explore the centrality of fatherhood in the lives of men and in the experiences of children. They show how fathers’ involvement contributes to the well-being of children. The authors argue that men can make a major contribution to the health of South African society by caring for children and producing a new generation of South Africans for whom men will be significant by their positive presence rather than by their absence or their abuse.

In this collection, authors examine the conceptual and theoretical questions posed and attempt to map the field. In the second section, fathers and fatherhood are examined from an historical perspective, showing how race and class have shaped fatherhood in South Africa, and how understandings of fatherhood have changed over time. In the third section, authors discuss the way in which fathers appear in the media, how men as fathers are often ignored or portrayed in narrow ways which inhibit alternative forms of fatherhood emerging. In the fourth section, authors offer answers to how men experience fatherhood and what obstacles bar men from expanding their engagement with children. Finally, the book offers examples of local and international programs that have been initiated to promote fatherhood and to work with fathers.

    My work on a chapter in Sexual Abuse of Young Children in southern Africa Richter et al 2004 which takes these terrible assaults as a starting point for an evaluation of the problem of child sexual abuse also brought back memories of an earlier case in which I had been involved. Key findings in Chapter 3 therefore include the strong emotional response that young fathers portray in response to the news of their impending fatherhood the way in which they articulate the meaning of responsibility in relation to their child the multiple reasons for having a child at a young age including but not limited to the role of alcohol and the lack of condom use in their peer group and the multiple ways in which fatherhood has changed their lives and the nature of their primary relationships with partners parents school and community.
