Paternal involvement and resiliency

Project (M.S.W., Social Work)--California State University, Sacramento, 2017.

This study utilized a quantitative survey research design to determine the relationship
 between paternal involvement and the effect that lack of involvement can have on an
 individual’s ability to cope with stressful life events. A convenient sample of 26
 participants was used. This study found that there was a significant relationship between
 the support of fathers after participants’ emergence into adulthood and success in higher
 education specifically the attainment of an Associate’s degree or higher. In addition, it was
 also found that father involvement in academics allowed for participants to better cope with
 stress overall. Implications for social work practice and policy are discussed.
