This is the two-day update to our acclaimed program, Assessments and Interventions: The Intersection of Family Law and Psychology. As in 2016, this course is taught by a multidisciplinary faculty of expert psychologists, clinical counsellors, lawyers and judges, who will provide insights and practical guidance on the challenging intersections of law and psychology in family law disputes.

After taking this program, you will:

  • acquire tips for dealing with high conflict parents
  • be aware of issues concerning attachment and parenting plans
  • gain a deeper understanding of parenting assessments and the role of assessors
  • appreciate children’s perspectives of separation
  • better understand intersectional issues and cultural competence

Day One will feature a discussion of:

  • high conflict family law disputes
  • the neurobiological effect of conflict on children’s development
  • issues relating to attachment
  • creating appropriate parenting plans

Day Two will include an in-depth discussion of:

  • parenting assessments
  • new research on children’s experience of separation and wish to be included in decision-making after separation
  • important intersectional issues and cultural competence in family law, including the impact of culture, socioeconomic status, and domestic violence on decision-making
