February ADR Luncheons: The Impact of Family Conflict on Children

Saturday, January 25, 2020 2:39 PM | Kristy Rhyason (Administrator)

The February ADR Luncheon topic is:

The Impact of Family Conflict on Children

Children exposed to conflict at home are damaged.  Their brains, endocrine systems and DNA telomeres are impacted permanently. This damage is associated with their futures as adults, and the damage is passed along to their offspring. Family conflict is a key contributor of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE). Our February luncheon speaker will provide insights and resources that everyone invested in the welfare of their children (or grandchildren) should be aware of.

Why should mediators and/or arbitrators care?

How should lawyers, mediators and arbitrators take this into account in their practice?

Our Speaker: The Honourable Andrea B. Moen

Andrea Moen was appointed to the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench on January 1, 2000 and retired from that position in October 2018. As a judge she heard many family law cases and became concerned about the impact of family conflict on the brain development of children. Her concern led her to a study leave focused on brain science.

Ms. Moen has a Masters of Social Work from the University of British Columbia and a Certificate in Conflict Resolution from the Justice Institute of British Columbia.
