AFCC Alberta Annual Conference:
Putting the Children First in High Conflict Separation & Divorce
A great opportunity for legal and mental health professionals, mediators and Family Court workers! Hear about evidence-based strategies that will help us to review and assess the effectiveness of some of our most frequently used practices on behalf of children!
Evidence-Informed Practice Considerations for Parenting Plans & Parenting Assessments
Proposed changes in federal divorce law place emphasis on our belief that “putting the children first” must be the priority when parents are separating. Learn more about what lawyers, mental health professionals, and others must consider when developing, evaluating and using parenting assessments and parenting plans.
Parenting Coordination: Does It Really Put The Children First? Is it really working here in Alberta?
Dr. Saini, a member of the AFCC Task Force on Parenting Coordination (PC), will present information recently collected across all states and provinces where PC is used. This is a great opportunity to address common questions about the process and effectiveness of PC and have input into future planning in this area.
Revised Guidelines & Practice Notes 7 & 8: Can They Help Us Keep The Focus On Children In High Conflict Parenting? The Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta and the College of Alberta Psychologists have both revised guidelines pertinent to separation and divorce. The speakers will clarify the guideline revisions and highlight changes. Audience discussion and problem-solving will explore the issues involved in the legal-mental health professional collaboration as we continue to attempt to put children first.
