Latino Fathers in Recovery

Latino Fathers in Recovery

(p.131) 8 Latino Fathers in Recovery
Parenting by Men Who Batter

This chapter describes pioneering work with Latino men in California who batter. The chapter discusses efforts to reconnect these men to positive concepts of parenting and manhood which are indigenous to Latino culture. Latino fathers have indicated that many public-welfare program requirements are at best confusing to them. In many cases, these programs create additional barriers to the fulfillment of Latino men's fatherhood responsibilities. For programs to fully understand essential values of the Latino population, it is imperative to explore the issues of cultural identity, language, the extended family system, immigration, the work ethic, self-sufficiency, and internalized oppression that impact the involvement of Latino fathers in their recovery process and their involvement with their children.
