Day 4 and 5 Workshop

Thursday, June 21 and Friday, June 22, 2018
9:00 am - 5:30 pm (each day)
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 4 and 5 will present a conceptual model of co-parenting work for high conflict co-parents. Disengagement through the structure of the parenting plan, and management of communication between co-parents are the essential components of this parenting coordination model. The nuts and bolts of constructing and management of a parallel parenting model including the use of email, shared parenting websites, and highly structured parenting coordination sessions will be explored and contrasted. Strategies for successful partnerships with other professionals typically involved in these cases will be explored. Participants will work with case vignettes that illustrate the ways that these cases can get derailed and pose challenges to effective case management. The last part of the presentation will address professional practice and professional risk management in this complex role.
