Item description for Fatherhood Communication by Elliott Cooke...
How do men learn to be fathers? In an age where the role of father in family life is going through a bit of an adjustment, this seminal work seeks to break new ground. Imagine a mechanic who does not understand the basic principles of the combustion engine and translate that to a family therapist who does not understand how men learn to be fathers and you start to understand the importance of this work. Surprisingly little is known about this process of learning the role of fatherhood from a communication perspective. What are the most frequent fatherhood messages, from what sources do they come, and in what contexts are they conveyed? Understanding this process yields invaluable insights to many disciplines and may hold the key to assisting men in being better fathers. Is there a more fundamental need in the study of family life today? This must read book makes a convincing case that there is not.
