Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


After a few words as to the role of fathers as well as a brief introduction to maternal gatekeeping, a regulator of paternal involvement, the objective of this paper is to invite the reader to reflect on the role that professionals in this field play in this process of gatekeeping, which in general restricts the role of the father and may have harmful consequences not only for the child development but also for the family functioning.
