Ronald has worked in the responsible fatherhood field for seven years. He has been the primary evaluator for a community-based program for unwed parents designed to increase father involvement. Ronald has also studied how Latino fathers mediate the influence of parent-child acculturation gaps on youth alcohol use. Most recently he has developed a curriculum for divorcing parents that aims to increase father involvement post-divorce and is currently conducting a pilot evaluation of this program.
