Author(s): Graeme Russell; Tony White
Graeme Russell began his work on fatherhood in the 1970s. He is a leading international researcher and practitioner on fathers and families, with six books to his credit on fathers, families, and work/life including "The Changing Role of Fathers" and "A Practical Guide for Fathers." Formerly associate professor of psychology at Macquarie University, he works with leading national and international organizations to implement effective approaches to work/life, flexibility, and diversity, including the highly successful workplace program "Men at Work." Tony White, a psychologist and manager of health and welfare services, has worked for 40 years with families, focusing particularly on the antenatal and postnatal role of fathers. He has developed the "Men in Families Project," a program for first-time fathers on the north coast of New South Wales that provides support for fathers from the outset.
