CLEBC Boardroom, 500 – 1155 West Pender Street, Vancouver

Who should attend: All those wishing to offer parenting coordination as part of their client services: family lawyers, mediators, arbitrators, parenting coordinators, and mental health and collaborative professionals. Parenting coordination is a child focused-dispute resolution process offered to separated, divorced, and divorcing parents who need assistance to more effectively co-parent, minimalize parental conflict, and implement their parenting plan. All those wishing to apply to or remain on the BC Hear the Child Society Roster of non-evaluative child interviewers should attend Day 3.

Learning level: All levels

Days 1 and 2 will cover the roles and functions of the parenting coordinator, the historical context, including the status of parenting coordination in Canada and the US, professional guidelines and training requirements, current research on effectiveness and inappropriate cases, and characteristics of high conflict families. Family violence and the implications for the PC process and the key components of the PC Order and PC Agreement will be addressed. Using case examples, the nuts and bolts of the process, including referral, intake, and contracting, the consensus building phase, involvement of collateral sources, and an overview of the arbitration phase will be discussed.

To prepare parenting coordinators for their role as a parent educator, the relevant social science literature research will be summarized. These topics include: the impact of separation/divorce on children and adolescents; consequences of parental conflict on children and adolescents and its impact on parenting and the quality of parent-child relationships; different types of parenting styles and effectiveness; impact of parent adjustment and fathering on child and adolescent adjustment; and developmental considerations for parenting time schedules for infants/toddlers, preschoolers, school-age children, and adolescents.
