ESTALAYO MARTIN, Luis Manuel. What makes a good father?. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2010, vol.30, n.3, pp.419-436. ISSN 2340-2733.

It's supported the need to consider the difference between the real, symbolic and imaginary parent that is described by psychoanalisis in the diagnostic evaluation of the "parental competency". The absence of these concepts can imply abrupt and shallow evaluations which are excessively focussed in phenomenological aspects.

Keywords : Fatherhood competency; Real father; Symbolic father; Imaginary father.
