Basic Training for New Dads is a “dads-only” parent education organization in San Diego headed by licensed clinical psychologist Dr. Daniel Singley. Our team is currently conducting a research study in which first-time fathers of infants up to four months of age complete an online survey. The purpose of the research is to help understand how men adjust to becoming fathers, and it only takes 10 minutes to complete the survey. As a show of appreciation for your help in participating, you will be entered into a drawing for a first prize of a Kindle Fire tablet or a financial contribution of $100 to the charitable organization of your choice.
There are a couple of conditions which you need to satisfy in order to participate. You need to:
 Be a first-time dad
 Have a baby whose age currently ranges from newborn up to 16 weeks/4 months old
 Be co-residing with the baby’s other parent (biological or otherwise)
You can access the survey by going to and clicking on the link under “Calling New Dads!”
