Project Fatherhood Men in Relationships Group (MIRG) 5-day Training Institute

February 3, 2014

From February 3-7, 2014, Children’s Institute, Inc. (CII) will be hosting Project Fatherhood’s Five-Day Training in the “Men in Relationships Group” (MIRG) Model.

Please contact Alan-Michael Graves at or 213.260.7604.

About the MIRG Model:
Research has shown that father presence reduces many negative outcomes for at risk children. At CII, we sought to address the problem of father absence by developing a comprehensive fatherhood program. This program has been validated by working with fathers of children who are at risk or have been in the system due to abuse and neglect. We feel that this model can be applied in a wide variety of community and faith based organizations.

Who Should Attend:
Project Fatherhood is soliciting applications from mental health professionals who would like to be trained in our intervention treatment model. The preference is to receive applications from individuals who are capable of implementing a program in their agency. However, individual consideration will be made among applicants who have experience in the field and would like to know the model to help them reach out to fathers and significant others of at risk children. Due to federal funding there is no cost to the participants of this training.

Previous trainees have very positive statements about the training and have implemented the program in their agencies. And research has shown that the model is effective in increasing positive outcomes for children and families. The training program emphasizes group interaction with a component of therapeutic intervention for the children of the fathers.
