InsideOut Dad is part of the National Fatherhood Initiative and is a rapidly spreading program through out jails and prisons across the United States, including Utah, where offenders learn how to parent while incarcerated.

According to the National Fatherhood Initiative website “InsideOut Dad® is proven to develop pro-fathering attitudes, knowledge, and skills, giving fathers the necessary strategies to prepare them for release. The core program sessions feature unique exercises and research-based tools and techniques to encourage fathering from the inside. The optional reentry sessions help fathers prepare for responsibilities and challenges they will face on the outside.”

KSL recently highlighted the InsideOut Dad program, and several state inmates at the Beaver County Jail who recently completed the program. You can see the video here: https://www.ksl.com/article/46500734/class-teaches-utah-inmates-how-to-be-better-dads
