1. Dye, Alyssa R. "It's a real thing": fathers' experiences with perinatal depression.

Degree: 2020, California State University – Stanislaus

Depression during pregnancy and the postpartum period (i.e., perinatal) is commonly conceptually confined to women, omitting consideration of a key element of the holistic family system: fathers. Paternal perinatal depression affects approximately 12.5% of all fathers in North America. While the research to date has established prevalence, there is a paucity of literature exploring the lived experiences of fathers with perinatal depression. How fathers become aware of paternal perinatal depression as well as the influence of stigma and social support on help-seeking behaviors in particular, have remained largely unexplored. This qualitative, phenomenological study sought to explore the lived experiences of 21 fathers in the United States and Canada with paternal perinatal depression through semi-structured, telephone interviews. Applied thematic analysis was used to identify six themes in the collected data: Concerns Regarding Experience, Partner’s Lived Experience Influenced Help-Seeking, Perceptions of Masculinity as Barrier to Help-Seeking, Social and Professional Support Led to Improvement, Balanced Support Preferences, and Need for Awareness. These themes were each connected to a meta-theme, Validation. These findings emphasize the need for increased awareness of paternal perinatal depression as well as increased support for fathers during this time period. Future research directions include exploration of possible correlations between paternal depression and domestic violence, paternal abandonment, and attempted suicide, exploration of sources of information about paternal perinatal depression, interventions for prevention and amelioration of paternal perinatal depression, and policy changes to increase support for fathers. Advisors/Committee Members: Baker, Kurt D (advisor).
