Abstract

This paper deals with the role of fathers within a context of parent-infant counseling or therapy. A review of the evidence regarding father-infant interaction and of fathers' involvement in therapeutic intervention is complemented by a case vignette of a young family. It illustrates the different personal characteristics of each parent in their family interaction and delineates options for therapists, notably the useful potentials of fathers.
