CHRISTOPHER GIBSON

The Resurgent Father & His Path to Paternal Reentry in the Midst of COVID-19 & Social Unrest

Fathers are an essential piece to their child’s life; however, they are often excluded from the valuable moments of attachment and bonding with their child. When fathers are welcomed back into the loving arms of their child, they experience adverse challenges that have an effect on their path to paternal reentry.  While the path to paternal reentry can be strenuous, it is heightened by COVID-19 and the social unrest that occurs today. In this keynote presentation, Melvin Calaway Jr. and Chris Gibson share the importance of actively engaged fathers and the challenges that resurgent fathers are faced with during his path to paternal reentry. They will also take a look at the added challenges that COVID-19 and the current state of unrest have had on a father’s ability to bond with their child.

As a result of this keynote session, participants will take away:

  • Equity: The importance of fathers having equal involvement and rights in their child’s life.
  • Inclusion: The positive outcomes for families, children, fathers and communities when fathers have an active role in their child’s life.
  • Access: The importance of strong advocates for fathers’ rights. 
  • Mental Health: Depression/PTSD in men of color, specifically fathers
  • COVID-19: The effects that the pandemic has on maintaining family relationships, specifically with the shelter-in-place order.
  • Social Unrest and how it stems from Institutional racism led to pent-up anger: police brutality, unlawful shooting of black men and more enlighten to the recent murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police.
