Strong Dads Strong Futures

Background
This study aimed to highlight the importance of family values while showcasing the significant roles and responsibilities of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander male parents. It is anticipated by privileging these men and their stories of parenting future generations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander male parents and their children will benefit.

The study tried to better understand the roles and responsibilities of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men through privileging their voices while concentrating on their cultural identity and cultural practices as parents. The men were able to come together and discuss the importance of maintaining and instilling on to their children cultural identity and cultural practices to keep them strong in mind body and spirit. This strengths-based approach allowed for rich data to be collected and a mutual rapport to be developed between the community and the research team.
