This multi-disciplinary training meets the needs of professionals who work with children in all areas of law. It will help you sharpen your knowledge and practice on the best interests of the child, and meet each child's unique circumstances considering influences such as culture, ability, and trauma.
Using a practice framework, grounded in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, we will provide essential information on healthy development for children, best interest practices, and other access to justice needs at each age and stage of the child's life.
You will receive concrete examples and tips on how to adapt your practice to meet the child in their particular context. We will also explore the continuum of services available to children in BC to address these issues, and how to triage a situation given the lived reality of the child.
