The Family Law Section of the Department of Justice and Public Safety is pleased to host “The Nuts & Bolts of Parenting Coordination”, a two day training opportunity on Thursday, June 9th, and Friday, June 10th, 2016, at the Rodd Charlottetown Hotel from 8:30-4:00.
Illustrated by case examples throughout, participants will learn the parenting coordination process from start to finish beginning with intake, screening and contracting. The consensus-building phase will include an overview of conflict resolution and disengagement strategies, the application of key parent education topics, and the involvement of experts and other collateral sources. Obtaining the voice of the child will be examined, including the risks and benefits, considerations for assessing the reliability of child reports, and a provision of a developmentally informed child interview protocol. Arbitration, the final phase of the parenting coordination process, will be elucidated with a summary of the legal framework, procedure and award writing. Professional practice challenges and risk management strategies will be highlighted.
