United in their concern for America’s current generation of young men, Joseph Cohen and Christopher Salem – both authors, speakers, and fathers who care deeply about their sons – have developed a broad spectrum of resources that will provide fathers with the insight, information and tools they need to play a more engaged, supportive and influential role in the lives of their sons (the fathers of daughters will also benefit).

This program will help reduce bullying incidents, raise self-esteem, and decrease the rates of teenage suicide and school shootings across the United States. It is designed for socially responsible corporations and communities across the United States as well as in school districts educating at-risk youth.

With the intention of facilitating youth development while promoting balanced living, social responsibility, and sustainable success Empowered Fathers in Action will provide curriculum and workshops; educational seminars and retreats; teacher and workshop facilitator training; consulting; individual coaching; and selected books written by Joseph Cohen and Christopher Salem.

The signs can be seen in bullying incidents and low self-esteem, in increasing rates of teenage suicide and in the disturbingly frequent school shootings.

These incidents are all “red flags” that call attention to one aspect of parenting that continues to receive far too little attention – the relationship between fathers and sons. The impact of fathers on the psychological well-being and social behavior of their children has been well documented.

The dangerous and extreme results of boys who are allowed to grow up without the positive bond with their fathers has been documented in school shootings, bullying incidents, and increased rates of teenage suicide.
