Learning level: All levels

For many, ending an intimate partnership is a time of danger. ”Family violence” is defined under the BC Family Law Act (FLA) to include all elements of physical and emotional violence and abuse. Research shows that family law professionals often fail to ask questions needed to properly assess risk, and may also fail to recommend the most appropriate dispute resolution processes for their clients. This highly interactive two-day workshop is the only in-person, comprehensive family violence training available in BC. Featuring real case studies, personal stories, role-playing, coaching, and review of current literature, research, and statistics, this is a must-attend event for family dispute resolution professionals looking to meet their training requirements under the FLA.

After participating in this workshop, you will be able to:

• assess presence of emotional or psychological family violence in addition to physical violence
• identify any danger present from children, family members, and other individuals in addition to former partners
• understand complex family violence dynamics including mental illness, stress of separation, and personalities of parties involved
• assist clients in choosing dispute resolution processes that best keep them and their children safe
• empower your clients to negotiate effectively

Join us and improve your family violence awareness today.
