Upcoming Webinar: Inside the Black Box: Measuring Service Delivery, Client Engagement and Fidelity

Online registration is now open for the seventh FRPN learning community webinar, which will take place on Tuesday, March 7 from 12-1:30 p.m. EST.

This webinar will illustrate how programs and researchers can track the services and interventions that fathers actually receive using approaches developed in previous national demonstration projects. It will also consider ways to measure receptivity and buy-in from participants based on a tool developed for use with clients in child protective services. Finally, attendees will learn about measuring how consistently a fatherhood program is delivered over time and by different facilitators.
