Identifying, assessing, and managing family violence and power dynamics in dispute resolution process design
The Family Law Act also provides that family dispute resolution professionals must screen for family violence to ensure the processes used do not endanger, disadvantage or adversely affect the safety of the participants or their children. This involves assessing whether family violence may be present, helping clients determine which dispute resolution processes might be best, adapting those processes to take into account particular concerns and empowering participants to negotiate effectively.
This highly interactive two-day workshop using lectures, current literature, research and statistics, real case studies, role-playing, coaching, and in-class discussion, and the guidance of trained coaches, is designed to meet the training requirements for family dispute resolution professionals under the amended Family Law Act and Regulation.
