Who should attend: Lawyers practicing in the area of family law and mental health professionals, mediators, arbitrators, and judges who deal with family conflict.

Learning level: All levels

This two-day course, taught by a multidisciplinary faculty of expert lawyers, judges, psychologists, and clinical counsellors, will provide insights and practical guidance on the often challenging  intersection of psychology with family law disputes. Day 1 will feature a discussion of children’s experiences of separation and conflict, childhood developmental psychology and crafting age-appropriate parenting plans, and judicial and therapeutic interventions in family law disputes. On Day 2, we will take a critical look at experts’ forensic reports on children and parenting, and the legal and scientific standards that apply to them, and address the causes of and potential remedies for children’s reluctance to visit a parent after separation, focusing on parental alienation and child estrangement. This course is an essential learning opportunity for all professionals involved in family breakdown, including judges, mental health professionals, lawyers, and mediators.

At this course you will learn about...

  • the fundamentals of attachment theory and child developmental psychology, and the application of these concepts in high conflict family law cases
  • the dynamics involved when children refuse to visit a parent after separation
  • the alienated and estranged child, and the judicial and therapeutic responses to alienation and estrangement
  • the range of assessments and interventions available in family law matters, and their strengths and weaknesses
  • how to critically assess custody assessments

Law Society of BC CPD Hours: 13 hours, including 6 hours training for a DR professional. A minimum of 2 hours will involve aspects of professional responsibility and ethics, client care and relations, and/or practice management.
