Two UA professors are promoting the importance of the father figure, both in human development and development in other species, through a new course.
Research on fathering is one of the focuses within the McClelland Institute for Children, Youth and Families and its Fathers, Parenting and Families Initiative. It is also a developing aspect in education, demonstrated by a UA course called “Men, Fatherhood and Families: Biocultural Perspectives,” taught by Dieter Steklis, a professor at UA South, and his wife Netzin Steklis, a family and consumer sciences lecturer.
