USF St. Petersburg Professor of Psychology James “Jamie” McHale and USF Tampa Professor of Psychology Vicky Phares were featured as guest editors in the May 2015 issue of ZERO TO THREE, a publication by the National Center for Infants, Toddlers, and Families.

In the journal, McHale and Phares joined with leading infant-family mental health practitioners to explore how fathers are included in services to families with very young children. Articles in this issue discuss the new movement of focusing on the entire family system rather than just focusing on mothers and children to in order to support and engage fathers and mothers as co-parents.
